We know a thing or two about working with charities, helping them cut costs and generate funds for their designated cause. We understand that incoming call handling through your helplines and donation lines is a vital part of your work.
Some of our charity partners have been with us from the start and our formidable customer base speaks for our service.

I just wanted to say that your service has been GREAT. Really helpful from very first enquiry right through the process and fast response to any issues (our fault not yours!) We’ve been really impressed by the answering service and are already finding the virtual switchboard a better way of managing our limited resources by directing calls to the appropriate person automatically. We are sure that as we grow and use the system more, we will find more ways of utilising it to support our charitable objectives. Thank you.
Our 03 number helps us provide a low cost way for the public to get in touch and access our 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.

Our Charity Solutions
Charities are now using 0300 numbers as they work in exactly the same way as other non-geographic numbers but they cost the same to call as standard 01/02 landline, and are even included in people’s free minutes so they are cheaper/free to call, even from mobiles.
Call Management Services
Why pay for expensive services when you could have control of advanced call management services such as number mapping, IVR and time based routing via our Call Command Portal?
SMS 'Text to Donate'
