“We are delighted we can make use of  our end of ranges, samples and split case goods through Giving World Online," Anthony Wagman, Chief Executive, Quest Personal Care Global Ltd.

 

"It's great to see the range of projects we have helped through Giving World Online and how much difference it makes," Gary Bates, Managing Director, Serif (Europe) Ltd.

“This helps both businesses and communities and is an excellent and unique concept,” Martin Traynor, Chief Executive, Leicestershire Chamber of Commerce.

 

“Think of Giving World Online as a sort of dot.com dating agency; a marriage bureau that matches the needy with the givey to create relationships made in recycling heaven,” Leicester Mercury.

Giving World runs a voluntary work experience scheme, enabling people recovering from illness or with a disability to sort and pack goods. All our volunteers are current NHS patients or have been referred by Social Services.

Our programmes offer a therapeutic activity that develops essential life and work skills. Many of our volunteers experience multiple and complex needs. They are often leading unpredictable lifestyles and feel lonely and vulnerable. Generally, they are at differing levels of development and transition towards self-sufficiency, so supporting each person's transition is the most critical part of our programmes.

The achievements are amazing. Some get on the bus, solo, for the first time; others count past 20 for the first time. They even make their first real friendships here. They laugh with each other, they challenge each other, all the while sorting and packing goods to deliver to a family or person they are helping.
