UK businesses produce £2billion* worth of surplus products every year which, tragically, often end in landfill. (*University of Leicester)
Surplus, end-of-line stock, is a valuable resource that can improve lives.
A society in which no one is in want because nothing is wasted.
Help us turn this exciting vision into a reality. If you are taking stock, please donate your surplus stock now, saving you storage and landfill costs, and helping people in need.
Disposal of surplus stock to landfill is a significant cost to UK businesses and harmful in its impact on the environment.
Surplus is a 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.
At Giving World we redistribute this new excess stock to people in crisis and those living in poverty and hardship across the UK, giving them the breathing space they need to get back on their feet.
And you save time, money and warehouse space; reduce your tax burden; AND achieve corporate responsibility goals.

There are 14.3 million people living in poverty in the UK today, 4.6 million of these are children*.
Child poverty in the UK is a silent scandal, with the number set to rise to 5 million* in 2020. Poverty harms children’s health and damages their future. It also damages our society as a whole.
Children living in poverty are more likely to:
- Have poor physical health
- Experience mental health problems
- Have low sense of well-being
- Underachieve at school
- Have employment difficulties in adult life
- Experience social deprivation
- Feel unsafe
- Experience stigma and bullying at school.
