Dial2Donate is offering free 0300 numbers to all UK registered charities, providing an easy way for charities to fall in line with Ofcom guidelines.
The scheme, run in partnership with NumberSupermarket.co.uk could save charities of any size to potentially save thousands of pounds every year.
Brought in by telecoms regulator Ofcom in order to provide the public sector and charities with their own dedicated number range, Oxfam, Unicef and the RSPCA are among the many charities that have already switched over to an 0300 number – and it is expected that every other major charity in the UK will need to change within the next year.
The package being offered includes IVR functionality, web reporting and management of the number, and free apps for Android and iPhone as well as many more features, all free of charge. This can be simply applied to an already existing telecommunications system, or can simply be re-routed to a phone line – allowing any registered charity a national presence with their phone number.
