At Charityline, we offer a telecoms service that’s just for the Voluntary and Community sector. We’re the low cost charity arm of Standard Utilities, a Belfast-based leading provider of Third Sector telecoms solutions. We offer significantly reduced rates and sector expertise to not-for-profit organisations in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

How does Charityline work?

Most voluntary and community organisations pay too much for their telecoms services. So when it comes to upgrading it can often look like an unaffordable option, which stops you from being digitally progressive and driving change.

By cutting costs for the Voluntary and Community sector, we allow you to save money that can then be used to improve your phone solutions and hardware or software – or spent on the things that matter most.

How much does it cost?

Up front, generally nothing. We’ll send one of our Charityline team members out (usually Chris or Brian, our directors) to review your current telecoms package. Then, and based on this information – and any upgrade or changes you might like – we’ll put together a proposal that’ll illustrate clearly the most suitable arrangement; showing you a detailed breakdown of both costs and cost savings.

What others have to say…

“WOMEN’STEC has been with Standard Utilities for over four years now.  While cost is of course an important factor when choosing a provider, what’s increasingly important to us is consistent, quality customer service –  and Standard Utilities excel in this area.


Lynn Carville, Women’sTEC

“We’ve been with Standard Utilities since early 2016. They’ve taken the time to learn and understand our needs as a not-for-profit, to supply us with the highest quality.
