About the Tesco Mobile x Crisis partnership

In August 2020, Tesco Mobile launched a two-year partnership with Crisis to educate and engage on the issues around digital connection and homelessness. Tesco Mobile are committing £700,000 worth of device & connectivity to Crisis in the first year.

To help Crisis guests access support services over Christmas, Tesco Mobile and PR agency John Doe launched a virtual Christmas (SIM) Card campaign, to give the gift of connection to people experiencing homelessness.

This campaign secured support from high profile celebrities, inspired individual fundraising and raised over £75,000 in 6 weeks.

This partnership increased awareness of the importance of digital connectivity to people experiencing homelessness, strengthening the resolve of Crisis and Tesco Mobile resolve to work together to end homelessness.

A huge thank you to John Doe and Tesco Mobile for making this partnership an incredible success.
