    Donate surplus products,
    save money, storage and landfill

Giving World partners with businesses and charities to redistribute end-of-line, surplus and discontinued products for free, to the most deprived communities across the UK.

Our Theory of Change:

Leverage the power of surplus goods

Stacks of boxes

Every year UK businesses produce £2billion worth* of surplus goods (*University of Leicester). Surplus is the natural cycle of business but what we do with it can and does make a difference, helping the most vulnerable people to significantly improve their life chances.

Inspire community action

Through a network of partners, these surplus supplies are given for free to the most vulnerable in our communities: packaged food, warm winter clothing, toiletries and basic household products. These brand new, unopened items may otherwise be sent to landfill. Follow this link to receive surplus products…

Fulfil essential needs

It is impossible to overstate the impact the goods have for beneficiaries. Powerful stories of making low incomes stretch; preventing debt and high risk loans by providing household essentials like nappies and cleaning products; preventing social isolation with new clothes and shampoo.

Transform lives

A child who received items through Giving World

“Every day was a constant worry trying to make ends meet, even though we both work! I suffered from anxiety and depression, and cut myself off socially. I received a huge box of items: washing powder, bedding and toys, which helped save money in the long run. I was over-whelmed when I saw how much and almost cried! Things are much more positive now.”
