Corona Virus Update
Care UK Charity's premises are now closed, until further notice. As a charity we aim to fulfil our mission of helping those in their time of need With that in mind we will be releasing essential items previously put aside for our next container. There are many items and products that we can safely pass on locally, to Food Banks, other charities and groups. Front line workers and the vulnerable need our help the most now. We can recover our stocks when we get back to normal but are resolved that we have to help locally as much as we can right now. The Homes Team, led by Janet Stott, will be offering essential support where they can, safely. Stay safe. Take care of yourselves and others, where you can.
See you on the other side. We will have much to do.
Helping people in their time of need
Care UK Charity collects and distributes practical items and medical aid to people in need. End of line, unwanted or excess stock items are sorted, packed and loaded onto 40 ft containers at our Northwich Depot, leaving for the refugees in Syria, Greece, or the Greek Islands. We are based in the North of England.
Helping people who have almost nothing
Care UK Charity's Homes Team also assists refugees who have settled in the UK and local people referred by Social Services or other charities. These people often have almost nothing available to them to set up home or conduct their lives. The Care UK Homes Team are always in urgent need of furniture, household items and soft furnishings, in order to create a comfortable home from home.
Recycling unwanted stock
Are you a manufacturer or stockist of any of the items on our most wanted list? Do you have stocks that are nearly out of date, or no longer current? Could you donate them to us? You would be fulfilling your corporate social responsibility in terms of recycling, and clearing space in your storage facilities all at the same time.
You can make a difference
More importantly, you will be helping people in need, families with children trying to survive in horrendous conditions both here in the UK and overseas.
Most urgently needed items
These are our most urgent needs this month. If you can donate any sort of practical or essential items, hygiene product, or medical items that we have not listed PLEASE let us know as we probably need them too. This is just the most urgent list. Please help make a difference to people's lives.
