In Kind Direct

Get more of the products you need for less.

In Kind Direct redistributes surplus goods from companies to UK charities working in the UK and abroad.

In Kind Direct helps charities to save money by providing access to the products that charities need to run their organisation and help beneficiaries. Products might include toiletries and cleaning products, clothes and toys, or office supplies and tools.

Charities that save money by receiving products from In Kind Direct can therefore focus funds on core activities and fundraise less.

Registration is free. Once registered charities get to access an online catalogue of products and then order the items they need. Each time a charity orders they pay a small handling charge to use the service, which includes delivery. Typically it’s 10%-20% of the retail price of the goods.

Since foundation in 1996, In Kind Direct has redistributed £130 million in value of goods from over 930 companies. Over 6,700 charities have received products from In Kind Direct, helping millions of people in need.

In Kind Direct was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1996 and is one of The Prince's Charities, which is the largest multi-cause charitable enterprise in the United Kingdom.
