Having a clear out? You can send your unwanted items to our charity shops by using Shelter's free Collect+ service.
All you need is some packaging to pack up your donations. It’s easy, free and you’ll be helping fight the housing emergency with every item you donate.
How to send your donations to Shelter
1. Find your nearest Collect+ drop-off point
There are thousands of conveniently located drop-off points across the country. Most of them are in local convenience stores, so you won’t need to go to a post office.
2. Pack up your donations
Each parcel can weigh up to 10kg and measure up to 60cm by 50cm by 50cm.
3. Generate a Freepost label
Generate your Freepost label. You can either show the label barcode to a member of staff at the drop-off point or print the label off at home.
Please add Gift Aid at this point if you’re a UK taxpayer. There’s no cost for you and we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 raised through sales of your donated items.
4. Take your package to a drop-off point
Hand over your package and show your collection barcode. That’s it!
