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.
We are in close contact with the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) to offer support, and right now financial donations to aid agencies are the most important way we can all respond and support efforts on the ground in Turkey and Syria.
We believe everyone deserves access to life’s essentials. In 2022, the cost-of-living crisis forced people to make the impossible choice to heat, eat, or keep clean. With resources stretched to the limit, this year, our work was more needed than ever.
Is there anything you’d like to know about In Kind Direct? Are you new to our network and want to know how to get started? Do you want to hear how other similar organisations are giving out products? Or do you simply have a question about how we can best support you?
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the Turkey – Syria Earthquake.
You may remember back in September we ran a buy 2 donate 1 promotion in partnership with Unilever in 750 Tesco stores across the UK. The support was overwhelming, and we received a whopping 400,000 personal care products donated from the promotion.
We’re working with Amazon, digital education charity, the Learning Foundation and education charity Teach First on a new scheme, Tech4Schools, to provide low-income schools serving disadvantaged communities with new devices, digital skills training and tech support.
We’re working with a host of strategic charity and corporate partners to help organisations in our network tackle digital poverty and increase digital access in their communities. In the last impact survey with our charitable network, over a fifth reported that technology, laptops, tablets and accessories were one of the most needed categories of product.
We understand that funding to run your vital support services remains a big concern for many, and we want to support wherever we can.
