Gifts

As you know, Giving World supports thousands of beneficiaries through our thousands of partner charities. We have almost 5,000 charity partners on board now, helping people at the time of crisis and helping alleviate poverty in the UK.

Child poverty in the UK is at shocking levels. The national average is bad enough: 31% of our children experience poverty. However in the North West that figures rises to 47% and in the North East that figure is at 39%.

At Christmas, Giving World stepped in to distribute 47,059 Christmas presents to children living below the poverty threshold. Our charity partners worked with parents to find out what children might like, then matched gifts to the children. It was an amazing effort, and it meant that thousands of children had something to open on Christmas morning.

For people living on low incomes, household cleaning products and toiletries are seen as luxury items; especially as the cost of food is rising faster than incomes. Delivering essential goods means people are less likely to be isolated. It can be socially embarrassing - if you can't afford shower gel for example. Last year we distributed 160,727 essential household items, like cleaning products and toiletries, preventing social isolation for many.

Delivering clothing is another way we can help people living below the poverty threshold. Everything we deliver is brand new and might otherwise have been sent to landfill. Last year we distributed 184,010 items of clothing.

We wouldn't be able to do this without the support of our generous donors, so a big thank you to all of you.
