How can you help?

There are many ways you can help. From volunteering to donating and everything in between. If you want to help families in your local area, then you have come to the right place. With the current financial crisis, the demand on our service is increased enormously, and we welcome any form of support you are able to offer.

Charity Donations


The Demand for our services is increasing and we are urgently looking for more volunteers to sort donations and prepare items for families. Whether you can spare an hour or a whole day to help, we would love to hear from you.


We have several hubs based across The London Boroughs. Our Lakeside store, Kideco, Bretons Manor in Rainham and Marks Gate Community Hub in Marks Gate Dagenham.


We have been inundated with donations and are looking for help to sort through them.

Training and support will be provided by our team.


As a volunteer we will provide you with the opportunity to:


  • Learn new skills or put existing skills to good use

  • New experiences

  • Meet new people

  • Help a great local cause in the local community

  • Make a real difference to local families in need

If this sounds like something you would like to be involved in, please contact us on or give us a call on 07379575792
