No! The Closet is open to everyone. There is no eligibility criteria.
For fairness & transparency, families will be given a Membership Number & can use the service twice monthly.
Delivery of items will only be made in exceptional circumstances. We have lots of times available each week for collections!
We prefer donations to be dropped off but in exceptional cases or where donations are local, we will try to accommodate you if we can.
No, no-one is paid at The Closet. We also do not charge for any items or services.
95% of everything that come in goes back out! If we have a surplus of any item, we will share it out to working partners or perhaps send to one of our overseas projects. We have also formed some partnerships with local Sewing projects to make use of any scrap material that is still reuseable!
The Closet encourages local people to recycle their textiles and unwanted kids items in an environmentally friendly way - helping others & reducing landfill impact.
Yes - we prefer unbranded uniform but always have a stock of local schools bits too!
