Donate goods

It’s easy to donate goods to Sense. You can pop into one of our shops, drop off your donations at our book and clothes banks or arrange a home collection for larger items.

Give your second-hand things to charity

You can donate all sorts of items to Sense Shops, from new and vintage clothing, shoes, bags and jewellery, to books, DVDs, CDs, toys, electrical items, bric-a-brac and more. Big or small, we really appreciate every donation we receive.

Some of our shops will even come to you we will happily arrange furniture collections, large items and house clearances from Sense Shops in Accrington, Ashford, Felixstowe, Kingstanding, Mottingham, Scarborough and Spalding. Contact your local shop to discuss.

For general collections and smaller items, just call or pop into your local Sense Shop to find out more. You might even pick up a bargain!

Every item we sell in our shops raises vital funds for Sense. With your support, we can make sure no one with complex communication needs is isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential.

Find your local book and clothes banks

Although we'd love to see you, you don't need to come to a shop to donate – you can recycle your clothes, shoes and books at our donation banks across the country. Drop in your goods and we'll take it from there! 

If you cannot see the map below or prefer a text-only alternative, we also have a text-only list of our book and clothes banks.

Gift Aid your donation

If you are a UK tax payer, you can Gift Aid your donation. This will allow us to receive an extra 25p on top of every £1 we make from selling your items.

Ask about Gift Aid in your local shop.
