Free 03 Telephone Numbers Available for Charities

Here at Ethical Good we love to surprise and delight by adding additional value to our clients. This blog certainly falls under this category! If you are reading this and you run (or work for) a charity, a not-for-profit or governing body, then we’re pleased to inform you that you can obtain a free 03 telephone number from Core Telecom - no catch!

With the cost-of-living spiralling, but the need for charities to support people going up, your organisation is no doubt looking at ways to reduce costs where possible, whilst also needing to over deliver on service. This offer can help you to do just that, and more…

03 numbers were introduced by Ofcom as an alternative to 08 numbers and they provide organisations with a single national point of contact, with no extra charge to consumers (calls to 03 cost no more than a national call to a 01 or 02 number).

Having a national 03 telephone number can help you to drive donations and improve the professional appearance of your organisation. Plus, the offer from Core Telecom comes complete with 11 free fantastic features, from creating a personalised greeting message to an answerphone service that ensures you never miss a call.

In case you were wondering how this is viable, Core Telecom are able to sustain this offer because they run their own network (and due to the billing between each network and BT). The model they work on is to offer a better consumer model than competitors and to take a smaller margin but look to develop long working relationships.

Having helped over 200 charities to reduce their phone bills including Oxfam, Mind, Cancer Research UK and RNLI, working with charities is close to the heart of this Telecoms giant, and they continue to look for more charities to help in this way. Here’s what two of their happy clients have to say about the offer…

“Our 03 number helps us provide a low-cost way for the public to get in touch and access or services easily. We want to ensure we are able to help as many children and families as possible, so our incoming calls are vital to letting us speak to them directly”.

Tony Curtis - MBE (formally NSPCC) Chairman – Dreams & Wishes

“Having a national phone number has been invaluable to us. We do not have a landline and therefore thanks to Core Telecom, we were able to link our 0300-telephone number to multiple mobile phones enabling us to ensure each call is answered by the right point of contact. We plan to expand this into a helpline soon for members of our community support group.

Having access to this for free not only provides us with some fantastic features, but it also enables us to use the little funding we have elsewhere, towards other important awareness and support projects. This is a great initiative from Core Telecom. Our dedicated account manager is always on hand to answer questions and the sign-up process was straight forward. We have loved being a charity partner”.

Carla Cressy – Founder and Chief Exec - The Endometriosis Foundation
