News: In Kind Direct Charity

In Kind Direct is one of the Prince’s Charities set up to support charities, community groups and not for profit organisations with donated goods.

Goods range from cleaning products, toiletries, clothes, toys and a range of other items that can be used to:

  • Give to people you support 
  • Clean and maintain facilities
  • Fill goody bags for events

Items are all new and good quality but may be short dated, have slight defects in the packaging or branding.  Charities register online, for free, and order products via an online catalogue. 

Although not a traditional funder, In Kind Direct helps charities to save money on everyday essential items. Charities can then use the money they save for other more important projects/outgoings.

Charities pay a small handling charge for the service. This helps contribute towards the costs of running a warehouse, staff, packaging and delivery. There is no extra charge for delivery. Registration is free!
