In Kind Direct

Helping UK charities do more with donated products

In difficult times, charities need every resource available to deliver essential services. In Kind Direct unlocks the power of in kind products (surplus which would otherwise end up in landfill) to tackle poverty and help children and families. Help us cut waste and support charities to do more!

Situation

Every day charities struggle to afford the essential goods they need to run their operations - toiletries and toys for a women’s refuge, sports goods for a youth group or cleaning supplies for a hospice. As the economy starts to recover, some people are being left behind, unable to even afford basics like toothpaste and soap. At the same time, companies are sending those very same products to waste simply because they are surplus to requirement or have slight defects in the packaging or branding

Solution

In Kind Direct, one of The Prince's Charities, provides a single contact point for companies with surplus goods to donate. We have the infrastructure to accept large quantities of goods, store and sort them and then deliver direct to charities’ doors in response to their needs. We address brand protection concerns by vetting and monitoring every charity we support. The result is an efficient solution which diverts usable goods from waste and unlocks their potential to help people in need.
