Calling OCD-UK

Information about calling OCD-UK.

OCD-UK offer a telephone information line for people affected by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder needing advice, information, help or support. The charity receives no funding from any source for offering this service which utilises staff and volunteers from across the country, hence the need for a non-geographical telephone number. Our team do a fantastic job in offering this service, often donating their time freely to help and support people affected by OCD.

The charity still operates an historic 0845 number, which is being phased out following our introduction of a 0345 number.  Calls to our 0845 number cost 2p per minute (charged by our telecoms provider) plus your phone company's access charge, but OCD-UK do not receive a single penny for operating the 0845 number.

When calling the 0845 number, callers are told that we have a low cost 0345 number that they can choose to call instead.   It’s also worth noting that the 0845 number is still inclusive within some BT call packages so the caller doesn’t actually pay anything at all (beyond their regular monthly package cost).

By choosing to introduce the 0345 number, we actually partially subsidise the 0345 number for our service-users to call us, because every minute of call time costs OCD-UK 1.5p per minute.

OCD-UK have also on occasion agreed to call people back where they have expressed difficulty in paying for calling the charity.
