We accept clothing and bedding in all sizes:

  • New or nearly new unstained duvets and pillows 

We can take pre-loved clothes as well as new ones, however we will only use clothes which are of a very high quality. Please use our quality rule when deciding what to donate to us: if you wouldn’t wear it yourself or want to see a member of your family in it, please don’t donate it to us. 

Please be aware that we can only accept brand new knickers, pants and socks and tights. We will accept extremely lightly worn bras. 

Please note we DO NOT accept food, toiletries, household goods, furniture, bric-a brac, jewellery, toys or anything not listed above. Our processing team will check to ensure none of these items have been included in your donation as our organisation cannot afford the expense of having to dispose of or relocate these items. Thank you for your co-operation with this.

ReLived by Sharewear 

Are you an employer working on your ESG? Do you want to enable your employees to take action for people and planet as part of coming to work? Then ReLived is for you. Participants in ReLived will receive a quarterly certificate stating the amount of clothing they enabled their employees to divert from landfill and how many people this clothing went on to support, and will be able to ‘sponsor’ a school or community venue to be part of the scheme 

More information on how ReLived works here

Textiles are the biggest landfill polluter in the UK yet, at the same time, the 14 million people in poverty in the UK need access to free-of-charge clothing to function and flourish in life. The Right to Clothing is a basic Human Right denied to millions of people across the UK. We are the space where clothing poverty meets clothing waste, offering the dignity of choice to those who access our clothing at our centres or through our outreach to other poverty alleviation organisations.  

DO DONATE: 

  • General Clothing (all ages) 
  • Shoes 
  • Coats 
  • Packs Of New Underwear 
  • Duvet Sets & Sheets 
  • Towels 

DON’T DONATE: 

  • Duvets 
  • Pillows 
  • Handbags 
  • Jewellery & Accessories 
  • Anything that isn’t clothing or light bedding 

If the quality isn’t good enough to wear or use yourself we won’t be able to use it. 

ReLived is the ONLY clothing collection scheme that guarantees the clothing donated here will go to someone in poverty in the UK free of charge.
