The Carphone Warehouse and Samsung is helping to promote the Get Connected helpline, run for the under 25s, by releasing a special edition Tocco Lite to promote the charity.

Get Connected can be called for advice and support on a range of issues affecting young people, such as finding somewhere safe to stay for a night or a referral to one of the many organisations providing specialist help throughout the UK.

The special packaging on the handset, which will retail for £49.95, allows the charity to promote the helpline to more children and youngsters in the UK than it could otherwise do alone.

Over 85% of contact to Get Connected is by phone and the helpline is run by trained volunteers. The offering is a continuation of a longstanding partnership with the Carphone Warehouse.
