Free SIM cards and mobile data available from Bootle Library

Sefton Libraries are working with Good Things Foundation to distribute free SIM cards and mobile data to local people facing digital exclusion. The National Databank scheme is supported by UK mobile networks (Vodafone, O2 and Three) and offers vital connections for anyone cut off from the basic daily activities most people take for granted, like contacting loved ones, accessing job interviews, finding essential health or other information online, and digitised public services.

If you're a Sefton resident and meet the eligibility criteria, you can collect a free sim card from Bootle library.

Anyone aged over 18 from a low-income household who qualifies in at least one of the following ways can apply:

  • you have no or insufficient access to the internet at home
  • you have no or insufficient access to the internet away from home
  • you can't afford your existing monthly contract or top-up

Simply pop into Bootle library and ask about the scheme, there are no forms or questionnaires to fill in.
