Donate food and goods | The Welcome Centre

Thanks to the generosity of our community last year we gave out the equivalent of 280,437 meals to people in need. 

We accept donations of most dried, fresh and tinned foods as long as they are unopened and in date. If you want to discuss a donation of surplus stock from your business, please contact [email protected]

** Please note The Welcome Centre donation centre is currently closed to the general public** 

If you wish to donate at one of our supermarket collection points, please only do so when you are doing your essential shopping. Alternatively, if your items are long-dated and non-perishable, please keep hold of them until we reopen. Thank you so much for your support and for helping us to keep our volunteers, donors and staff safe at this time.
