0300 Numbers

The popular number reserved exclusively for charities and not-for-profits. 0300 numbers are easy to recognise and cheap to call.

Calls made to an 0300 number are charged the same as a call to a standard 01 or 02 number.They are also automatically included in any landline or mobile inclusive minutes package, so it won't cost the caller a lot of money to contact you. You can compare this with calls made to an 0800 number, which are free from a landline but could cost up to 40p/min from a mobile.

Benefits of 0300 numbers

Get an 0300 number
  • For charities, non-profits and public bodies only
  • Cost the caller the same as a call to a UK landline
  • Can receive calls made abroad
  • National number - covers the UK
  • Wide choice of numbers available
  • Minimal regulatory restrictions

0300 numbers can be reliably called from abroad using the +44 prefix. This is a huge advantage if your charity / not-for-profit has offices or supporters overseas.

0300 numbers (also known as 030 numbers) are non-geographic numbers available only to charities, non-profits and public and government bodies.

Why Choose an 0300 Number?

0300 numbers cost little or nothing to call from both landlines and mobiles, which means they won't put off potential donors or volunteers from calling you. They help create the right impression about your organisation without costing you or your caller the earth to talk.

Traditionally, organisations may have used other numbers such as 0845 numbers and 0870 numbers, but the cost of calling these ranges can add up, especially from a mobile. This can discourage callers on a mobile getting in touch, which is usually the opposite of what you actually want to happen.

You will have to prove your organisation is eligible before you can get an 0300 number. You can find out more information on the eligibility guidelines here, or by downloading this eligibity guidelines pdf.

If you are not a charity / not for profit you can apply for an 0333 number instead. They work in exactly the same way as 0300 numbers but are available to anyone, including businesses.
