Our Stories

Our stories

Over 20 years in the business of distributing goods to charities in need gives us a personal view on what it means to live without life's essentials. We've met thousands of charities along our journey. Every one of them has a story worth sharing.

Organisations tackling the COVID-19 crisis

The Oak Foundation in East London usually provides play schemes, respite care and activities for both those with disabilities and their carers, alongside a nursery for local children. Their support workers are now going to the homes of disabled children and adults, but they need protective clothing, masks and sanitisers to be able to do so safely. They're also providing the children with treats and their families with cleaning products.
The Oasis Partnership supports families & individuals battling addiction across Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire in partnership with NHS, including supporting the children of those in support programmes, and supporting ex-prisoners to get back into work or education. During COVID-19 they’re expanding their service to cover a food kitchen and want to do more to support jobseekers.
The Brain Charity based in Liverpool is a singular charity supporting people with neurological conditions and those that care for them. They have had to close their community café so they can provide a meals on wheels service for the most vulnerable patients. They need In Kind Direct to keep providing items like toiletries, baby wipes and cleaning products.
Caxton House Community Centre in North London brings together 50,000 people a year in language classes, tea dances, youth groups and children’s sessions. But most of the activities they run in normal times are now closed for months and the team are now reorganising what they do so they can offer different kinds of support through the COVID-19 crisis.

Case studies

“Our aim at Hindleap Warren is to give every child the opportunity to get really muddy!”

Hindleap Warren provides high quality outdoor education and personal development opportunities for children and young people. Hindleap Warren is part of London Youth, a network of diverse community youth organisations supporting young people of all backgrounds right across the capital.

“Anything we can receive is a saving on our budget. It means our money goes so much further and enables us to subsidise costs for residential visits; we can spend more on extras that really add to what we can do for young people. For us, it’s a no brainer!”
