0300 numbers are UK wide national numbers specifically for use by public sector bodies and not-for-profit bodies such as registered charities. All other types of business, such as sole traders, partnerships and limited companies should view our 0333 numbers.

0300 numbers were introduced by Ofcom as an alternative number for organisations, who wish to offer their consumers a single, trusted point of contact.

The cost of calling 0300 numbers is the same as calling a standard landline number, be it from a landline or mobile. Callers that have free inclusive call minutes to landlines would also usually have calls to 0300 numbers included in their bundles, potentially meaning that callers can call you for free, even from their mobile.

Using an 0300 number for your inbound calls gives you the flexibility to control instantly online how and when you receive your calls whilst giving your callers a cost effective way of calling you.
