A Dundee-based social enterprise which provides low-cost mobile communications solutions to the third sector has brought significant savings to UK charities.
GoodCall provides low-cost mobile communications solutions to charities and social enterprises in the form of better handsets, lower line rental contracts and expert advice.
The firm began trading in 2019 when mobile communications entrepreneur Colin Loveday teamed up with award-winning charity chief executive, Caroline McKenna and has attracted a range of clients including Angus-based Skilz Academy, which uses sport and physical activity to make a positive impact in the community.
The social enterprise now employs two staff, with the long-term aim of training and employing customer service advisors from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The growing team is based at Dundee’s Water’s Edge development and has delivered savings running to tens of thousands of pounds for its clients.
Chairman Colin Loveday said: “No sector deserves truth and transparency as much as the charitable sector, so we are absolutely delighted to have made such a positive impact in our first six months of trading.
“Helping charities obtain mobile phones and contracts at low cost allows them to focus on the matter in hand, helping their beneficiaries, and we look forward to continuing to help other groups in the months and years ahead.”
