Social enterprise to save charities thousands on mobile phone bills.
Telecoms veteran Colin Loveday launches Good Call in Dundee.
A social enterprise has launched to save charities hundreds of thousands of pounds on low-cost mobile phone handsets and contracts.
Dundee-based Good Call is the first dedicated mobile social enterprise in Scotland.
Mobile communications entrepreneur Colin Loveday, who has 25 years’ experience running mobile phone businesses, is targeting charities, other social enterprises and community groups.
Good Call will return profits to customers in the form of lower line rental, better equipment and direct payment. It aims to recruit staff from disadvantaged or marginalised groups and provide ‘supplier’ training to charities.
Loveday, the founder of 4G Scotland and Predict Mobile and a director of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, set up the enterprise following a collaboration with Cyrenians.
