The Cost Of 0300 charity numbers?

The 0300 number range is reserved exclusively for charities, not-for-profits & public bodies. The cost for calling this number is placed on the caller, not the receiver. This makes them a memorable and low-cost number range for organisations to take inbound calls to. The number range is free to call if your contract has inclusive minutes, otherwise it charges your network operator’s standard rate.


What are 0300 numbers?

Introduced by Ofcom in 2007, The 0300 number range is reserved exclusively for charities, non-profits & public bodies. This non-geographical number range allows charities to adopt an easily recognisable number which gives them a national presence.


Why Are Charities Paying Phone Numbers?

To use an 0300 number, charities often have to purchase & rent the number from a UK national network operator. This can deter charities from adopting the exclusive number range because it creates a monthly rental fee.
