Be a Collection Point

How can I
be involved?

What is a collection point?

A collection point is an individual or group of people like a community centre or a church who have some available space and are happy to collect aid in their local area.

It can then be collected by us and be packed and sent to those in poverty and crisis situations.

All you need to get involved is:
1. A little space in your house or a place where you can keep donations of any size
2. Have your contact details on our website so people in your local area can contact you to donate
3. Liaise with us regularly so we can pick up your collection as often as you need.

From there the world, or your community is your oyster. You can wait and let people contact you directly to donate or you can come up with your your own ways to help other people in your community get involved to help support those who need aid.

If you think that you yourself or someone you know could be a collection point for GAiN UK, just let us know at

We would love to have as many of these collection points around the UK as possible.

Volunteer and help us pack!

If you live in the Birmingham area and have some time on your hands, you can help us pack.  Click here for more info.
