SIMs for Charities Programme
Pod Group works with charities to provide M2M data services and SIM cards free of charge* to registered charities through our SIMs for Charities Programme. If you are a registered charity which uses data and SIM cards as part of your charitable work, or would like to do so, please get in touch with us to see if we can help.
We work with charities to provide charity SIM cards across a range of voluntary sectors, from youth support services to volunteer emergency rescue, and provide SIMs and data for devices which include mobile card readers and multi-network SIMs for emergency pagers. We want to help your charity make savings on the costs of SIMs and data charges so that these resources can be freed up to focus on delivering your charity’s core services. We assess applications from registered charities on a case-by-case basis and our only criterion is that the cost of the SIM cards and data services provided by us would otherwise have to be met from donations.
In addition, if you are a charity using devices, hardware or services which use SIM cards, let us know: We may be able to approach some of our clients to see if they would be willing to support your work through the provision of goods and services at low, or no cost.
*All SIMs provided to charities will be subject to our Charity Terms & Conditions. We are under no obligation to provide SIMs or data free of cost. Any decisions we reach are final and will be entirely at our own discretion. We will apply monthly data limits (according to each charity’s needs) as a safeguard against high charges resulting from stolen cards, fraud or faulty hardware. To ensure our SIMs for Charities Programme is available to as many charities as possible, if a large number of SIMs are required for a single charity, we may offer SIMs and data at below gross cost.

Charity Services Exchange
In the future, we are looking to launch an independent website to draw together a network of suppliers who can provide products or services free of charge to charities. If you are a company reading this page, and are interested in joining us to set up a non-profit organisation to provide a range services free of charge to charities, please contact us.
If you are a charity we would also like to hear from you about what types of products and services you would like to be able to access.
