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.

Supporting families to have a Summer of Play

The summer holidays should be a time for children to look forward to, to have fun, freedom and time with friends.
