    New freephone number, October 2015
    We noticed that our geographic number was proving confusing for some people on certain mobile phone tariffs and some people assumed it would be expensive to call us. So we fixed it. It's completely free to call us from any UK landline or mobile telephone. You can also reach us (for free) on e-mail, twitter, facebook, through our website chat facility and, for the cost of a standard network text message (most mobile phone bundles include unlimited text messages), you can reach us by text by sending VOL to 60777.
