In Kind Direct – donated goods for your charity

November 11th, 2014

Picture of carer Agnes with donated goodsIn Kind Direct is a charity set up to support other charities and community groups. Founded by HRH the Prince of Wales, In Kind Direct distributes all kinds of donated consumer products to charities across the UK.  Donated products include toiletries, cleaning products, clothes, toys, stationery and a range of other essential items that charities need to deliver services.  Items are all new and good quality but become surplus because they are short dated, have slight defects in the packaging or branding or are returns.  To access goods, charities register online, which is free, and can then order products via an online catalogue. Charities then pay a handling charge, which is generally 20% of the original retail price, and includes delivery.
