Impact Report 2021
When we released the first edition of this report last year there was a feeling that the worst was over. Little did we know that another year on, Covid-19 would still be dominating our professional and personal lives.
This short report provides an update on what In Kind Direct has achieved with our charity network, corporate partners and supporters since the pandemic started in March 2020.
Over the last year and a half, we have seen the very best of our sector. It’s no exaggeration to say that it is thanks to the resilience, compassion and creativity of our charitable network that the impact of the pandemic has not been worse. I’m proud that we have been able to play our part; dramatically scaling up our service to provide more essential products to keep people safe and well.
