Jeenee Make a Difference Program - free mobile plan and 24/7 HELP Service for 10 readers of The Big Fix

The Big Fix has partnered with Jeenee Mobile to offer free services to 10 people living with disability, or becoming increasingly frail. Jeenee is a multi-award winning social enterprise

whose core purpose is to donate services that provide the benefits of mobile technology to those who need them most.

Each donated service provides 12 months free-of-charge access to a Mobile Plan and a 24/7 HELP service (valued at $455). The 24 /7 help line can be accessed via a simple mobile app, connected to a dedicated Australian-based team, who will help with whatever is needed. The team can even locate clients using the GPS on their phone and tell family and friends where they are, or send emergency services to their location. It’s a great back up if anything goes wrong, big or small, and can be used as many times as needed.

Jeenee Mobile believes technology can bring independence, and helps everyone be connected, engaged and included. To date, Jeenee has donated more than 280 services to people living with disabilities throughout Australia.

Jeremy Way, General Manager of Jeenee Mobile


Jeremy Way

“I believe that people are equal and should have equal opportunities. We are obliged to look after the most vulnerable. The older I get the more it bugs me that people are excluded because they don’t have a voice. Let’s give them a voice! The more active and engaged people with disability can be, the more they’ll be accepted as individuals in their own right and differences can begin to disappear.”

Jeremy’s grandparents founded the Spastic Centre of NSW in 1945 (now the Cerebral Palsy Alliance) and his mother has been CEO of the not-for-profit Community Connections Australia for 30 years. Jeenee was originally set up within Community Connections, but now operates independently as a social enterprise to raise funds to support its mission.
