Registered charities, community groups and statutory not-for-profit organisation helping people in need can access free resources, courtesy of businesses donating their surplus stocks. The charity or community group is responsible for the collection or delivery arrangements of the items (and delivery costs if there are any).
To part take in the scheme charities and community groups register at www.givingworldonline.com, which is free. There is an option to request certain products.
Giving World receives goods from businesses all over the UK and advertises the items on the website for charities to request and pass on to their beneficiaries. The warehouse is in Leicester, however as they often receive donations from all over the country charities can collect straight from the companies donating them.
