Why donate products to In Kind Direct?
More than 1 million adults and children are living in destitution in the UK today, with 668,000 households unable to afford essentials such as food, heating and clothes. Families are having to choose between paying utility bills, paying for food, paying for hygiene essentials or buying new clothes for their children. Charities and not-for-profit organisations need your support to help them. Tightening budgets make it harder than ever to afford high quality products, from clothing to cleaning materials. But donating products is not just another way to help a charity. It’s an established, successful way of giving that works for your company and communities alike.

Protecting your donations
We know it matters where your products are going. After all, that’s exactly why you don’t want to send them to landfill, or sell them on for a few pence in the pound. That’s why we’ve put together a complete monitoring programme for secure donations. So you can give with confidence.
Putting your surplus products to good use
When we talk about putting your products to good use, that doesn't mean selling it on. It simply means giving them to genuine charities who will use them, or give them for free to people in need. Every charity in our network agrees to our detailed terms and conditions to reflect that.
A relationship based on trust
If you’re about to donate products to us, we think it’s the least we can do to ensure your products are put to good and proper use. We vet the legitimacy of charities registering with us and have in place a monitoring policy to ensure that your products are used for charitable purposes. We will report back on where your products end up. If you need more visibility or control, we can also limit the distribution of products to the UK or overseas. There really is every reason to give.
