As the need for our support increases during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re sharing our message

In Kind Direct distributes essential supplies to a network of thousands of charitable organisations including community hubs, support and advice services and schools. Together, our network supports 7.7 million people each year and all will be touched by the current crisis. In March alone, we distributed £2million worth of goods including toilet roll, hand wash, surface cleaners, sanitary products and kitchen basics to communities across the UK - almost three times as much as March 2019.  

In these uncertain times, the need for our work has never been clearer and wremain hugely grateful to our generous product donor companiesAs we continue to provide a reliable supply of the most vital products, our story is being shared by a number of media outlets.
