We believe everyone deserves access to life’s essentials. Throughout 2023, In Kind Direct stepped up to deliver even more support to our charitable network and their local communities. We also commissioned new research to deepen our understanding of hygiene poverty, informing brand new initiatives that increased awareness of hygiene poverty, reduced stigma and secured more product to those who need it.
2024 is the 4th year of our five year strategy, where we want to work with more organisations, unlock more savings for you and the sector, and support even more people together.
