People with dementia to receive devices to block nuisance calls

25 April 2017

The Panel was pleased to hear that the government is to fund call-blocking devices to protect people with dementia and vulnerable people from nuisance phone calls, although only around 1,500 people will be given the gadgets under the initial funding. About £300,000 of the budget will be spent on the devices themselves, with the remaining funds allocated to management of the service and raising public awareness of scam calls.
