Sharewear provides emergency clothing, shoes and bedding to people in Nottingham currently in crisis. We operate a strict referral system. We are self-funded.
Our venue is The Beacon, Birchfield Road, Arnold, Nottingham NG5 8BY(the former Beacon Baptist Church on the Killisick estate.)
Fridays 10am until 3pm for donations, but 10.30am until 2pm for referrals.
Wednesdays 12.30 until 3pm for donations, but 12.30 until 2.30pm for referrals.
Our current team of volunteers come from many faith backgrounds or are of no faith. Our team also includes young people from Christ the King Sixth Form and former users of our service. Please contact us if you would like to join the team!

We also have an outreach scheme to help as many people in need as possible, who for whatever reason are not able to make it to our referral sessions. This involves providing our referral agencies and other partners with packs of previously-sorted clothing, ready to be given immediately to any of their service users presenting a need. The pack also contains a self-referral leaflet so that people in receipt of the pack can use it to access larger items like coats, shoes and bedding on Fridays . We are seeking partners who may want to have these packs delivered to them on a regular basis.
