Let’s talk VAT

We actively support changes that will reduce the cost of essential goods for organisations like yours and the people you support, and that support companies to donate more products – including targeted VAT relief.

Our commitment to sustainability

ESG stands for Environment, Social and Governance. It essentially extends the traditional sustainability issues of just environmental impact, to also include good governance practices and social factors. Here at In Kind Direct, we believe that improving lives shouldn’t cost the earth.
