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.

We are currently offering the following additional benefits to help our network of charitable organisations access more products and services with significant savings. From office supplies to training courses, we’ve got you covered.

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.

Network visits – Thank you

Bee Wirral CIC is one of our invaluable network partners who recently hosted a visit for In Kind Direct and Unilever. They offer a variety of services, such as classes for parent and baby groups, and wood workshop sessions that support the mental health and wellbeing of local men. Products they access from us are crucial for the running of Bee Wirral CIC, enabling them to support more people with essential products and keep their facilities clean.
