Help us to help people

We rely on the kindness of others to keep our service to refugees and people in need going every day. There were, and still are, millions of Syrian refugees as well as many millions of people in need of help both here and abroad. Our mission is "helping those in need, wherever they are". With the help of our dedicated and enthusiastic supporters we hope to be able to continue to do so for many years to come.

Help from businesses

There are three ways that local businesses and corporate organisations can help Care UK Charity in our vital mission.

1: Donate useful stock

The people we help need lots of simple items for daily living, such as toothpaste, nappies, socks, underwear, and tinned food (no meat products for refugees). If you have any you could spare, drop it off at our sorting depot and we will make sure it gets into the next container of aid that goes to Greece.

2: Sort donations

We always need extra help sorting all the donations out and packing them up for transport. It is a simple job, and it can be great fun for a team of people from the same workplace. Why not pull together a group from your company and volunteer at our depot for a couple of hours? It is a good team building exercise and we do provide excellent cake.

3: Donate money

Not everything that is needed is actually donated. By giving us cash you enable us to purchase the essential extras, often food and hygiene items, that we do not get as donations. It also helps us pay the electric bills and run our extremely overworked van.

If your company, business, or organisation can help in any way, please contact us today. We need you!

Help from individuals

Generous private people who turn up at our depot and donate or sort are the foundation of everything we do. If you would like to help there are three ways to do it:

1: Donate clothes and household items

The people we help need lots of simple items for daily living, such as toothpaste, nappies, clean socks, new underwear, and tinned food (but no meat products please). If you have any you could spare, drop it off at our sorting depot and we will make sure it gets into the next container of help that goes to Greece.

2: Sort donations

We need help sorting and packing all the donations ready for transport. It is a simple job, and it can be great fun. Can you volunteer at our depot for a couple of hours? We do provide excellent cake.

3: Donate money

Not everything that is needed is actually donated. By giving us cash you enable us to purchase the essential extras, often food and personal hygiene items, that we do not get as donations. It also helps us pay the electric bill.
