Background on 0343 numbers

0343 numbers are part of the wider set of national 03 helplines which are used for a variety of organisations which include private companies, charities and government bodies. These numbers are charged at ‘local rates’ which means usually you will have to pay an access charge followed by a per-minute rate to make the call, however inclusive minutes on your tariff can be used to call them for ‘free’ (the only thing you will lose is the number of minutes equivalent to the length of the call).
