The Product Giving Alliance – June 21

Product Giving Alliance

Charity Digital - FareShare - In Kind Direct - International Health Partners

Charity partners In Kind Direct, FareShare, Charity Digital and International Health Partners came together in May 2020 to form the Product Giving Alliance, a partnership aimed at distributing essentials from each area of expertise, including personal hygiene and cleaning products, food, technology and medical supplies. 


Our mission

 The Product Giving Alliance was founded tunlock the maximum social good from donated products, services and surplus by distributing these items in an efficient way to people in communities around the UK and overseas. 

COVID-19 response

“…For those families, households and individuals that have struggled to access food, toiletries, medicine or technology during lockdown, the continued work of the thousands of charities the Product Giving Alliance supports is vital. We make donating easy for companies, as well as giving them the confidence that their stock can achieve real impact. We encourage more businesses to see what is possible and step up however they can.”
