Has anyone been able to bulk buy mobile phones online? Question raised at a recent meeting because online retailers were restricting bulk purchases (the agency has the funding but can't buy more than one phone at a time). Any good contacts at online providers?

I've been trying to arrange accommodation for one of our regular rough sleeper guests. Streetlink arranged for him to be picked up and housed for one night. He was then sent an email from Merton Council asking him to download, complete and return a housing application form. He has a small phone (not a smart phone) and no access to internet or printer! I've printed the form for him and will scan are return it when completed, but there is no mention of hotel accommodation. Can anyone tell me if this system has now stopped for new applicants?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to ensure that Frontline Workers highlight the exceptional work they are doing on a daily basis, supporting people experiencing homelessness. Do you have a positive example you would like to share with other frontline workers? Whether it is little or large, we welcome you sharing any successes or positive news from the frontline.
