The Telecare service is a UKMG initiative that has been developed as a way to help protect vulnerable people from being contacted via
telephone by direct marketing organisations. We aim to significantly reduce the amount of unsolicited calls that the elderly, disabled and inconvenienced people receive.
As a data provider, UKMG feels it is their responsibility to ensure an ethical approach is taken towards the consumer details they hold. Like-minded organisations now have the opportunity to become members of the Telecare initiative as a further step towards best practice in the direct marketing industry.
