0300 numbers are a great alternative to 08 non-geographic numbers and this 0300 range has been designated for the sole use of public sector bodies and not-for-profit bodies such as charities.
Calls to 0300 cost the same as calls to a standard geographic number i.e. 01 or 02 numbers.
The major benefit of any 0300 number is that they are included in most mobile inclusive minute schemes. It gives your organisation a UK wide presence with the benefits of having a geographic costing number to call. If you are a charity or public sector body and looking for a 0300 number then please contact us to discuss your requirements.
OFCOM considers that the bodies eligible to use the '0300' number range should be either a public sector organisation or a not-for-profit body such as a charity. Every charity or public body must complete a due diligence form before the service is connected.
Please see the OFCOM guidance on 0300 numbers for further details.
