Government funds call blocking for the vulnerable

Our Calling Time On Nuisance Calls has claimed another landmark victory: under plans announced today by the Prime Minister, nuisance callers will soon be blocked from contacting the most vulnerable in society.

Theresa May is promising to provide susceptible members of the public, including the elderly, with the technology to do exactly that.

As part of the project, which is expected to cost £500,000, hi-tech call-blocking systems will be installed in the homes of some of the most vulnerable people in the UK.

trueCall devices block a range of calls including all recorded messages, silent calls and calls from numbers the homeowner has pre-identified as unrecognised.
