We have joined forces with St Basil's to make it even easier to help their important work with young people. St Basil's works with young people to toRead more enable them find and keep a home, grow their confidence, develop their skills, increase opportunities and prevent homelessness.

St Basils is both a Charity and a Housing Association with 45+ years track record of providing a holistic range of accommodation and support services to young people aged 16-25 who are homeless, vulnerable or at risk.

The stereotypes of homelessness can all too quickly attach themselves to young people and trap them in a cycle of homelessness and on a restrictive pathway. A focus only on need, risks and problems can overshadow talents, strengths and ambition.

Through our FREE and simple service, your old stuff is turned into a much needed donation to St Basil's.

Send us a box full of items and we take care of the rest. St Basil's receives a sum of money based on the value of the items you send in. The more you send, the more money the charity raises.Show less

Help St Basil's and prevent youth homelessness. Your donated goods will be promoting a more responsible way of living.

Most of the things people send sit in homes for years and then often end up in landfill. By donating your old items, you’ll be giving them a new home and helping more people buy used, instead of new.

We make sure nothing goes to waste. Every donation is sold, repurposed or recycled. Be a part in fuelling the circular economy and start packing up your box.
