How donating your items to charity by post works

Giving your unwanted items to Sense charity shops by post is as easy as one, two, three. It's free.

  1. Pack your items up in any envelope, parcel or box. Each freepost donation can weigh up to 10kg and be up to 60cm x 50cm x 50cm in size.
  2. Request a freepost label, then print. Your label will be emailed to you, including an in-store printing voucher, if needed. It'll expire after 30 days.
  3. Drop off to your local Collect+ point. Find your nearest point.

That's it. By donating your items, you're making sure we can continue supporting people with complex disabilities.

Don't forget to make your donation eligible for Gift Aid to make your gift go even further.

How your donations help Sense

Donating your pre-loved items to our charity shops will make a huge difference to children and adults who are deafblind or have complex disabilities.

The difference your donation makes:

  • £25 could pay for colourful, textured sight and sound tubes. These tubes contain jingling bells, so a child who is deafblind can explore different sounds and sensations.
  • £50 could help pay for a set of five light-up sight and sound tubes for a child who is deafblind to help stimulate their vision and hearing.
  • £100 could pay for a visit from a Sense Children and Family Support Worker who can give invaluable advice and support to the whole family when they need it most.
