Charities Board


We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team, with limited resources, but we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand.

At this time, please note the Charities Board should only be used by registered charities and not include personal posts. I’m afraid we will have to delete any posts that aren’t from a registered charity. If you are facing personal financial difficulties at the moment, please use MSE’s coronavirus guides – they contain all the info we have and are constantly being updated:

I have lost quite a bit of weight recently and I have a lot of good condition clothes (bigger sizes, practical day to clothes, trousers, jumpers etc) to get rid of. Normally I would just donate things to a local charity shop but I seem to recall seeing an appeal from a charity (can’t remember which) asking people to donate clothes for mental health units that they pass on to patients who come in with nothing and that I would very much like to support.

Does anyone recall anything like that? I have googled but not sure of the way to word it so I have had little success! I called the local psychiatric unit and they couldn’t help me. So thought I would reach out here for help. If it makes any difference I’m in Devon. I have read about donating clothes to homeless shelters and woman’s refuges but would like to go down the mental health route first.

Thanks.
