Gift Aid it!
Help us raise even more money from your donated goods, by signing up to Gift Aid.
Having a clear out? Donate your unwanted items to your local Age UK shop and you'll help us provide services and support to more older people.
We accept a wide variety of items that we can sell directly in our shops.
Unfortunately there are a few items that we can't accept, as we're unable to sell them in our shops. These include damaged, broken, incomplete or unsafe items, safety equipment, videotapes and cassettes, real fur, coat hangers and large household items such as duvets, pillows and bulky curtains.
If you'd like more information on what you can donate to Age UK, please contact your nearest shop or call us on 0800 169 8787.
Simply take your donations to any Age UK shop on the high street.

You can recycle your unwanted desktop PCs, laptops, computer monitors and tablets equipment safely and easily while helping us fund our vital work. Donating unwanted IT can be done through the RDC (IT disposal and recycling) website.
Your old clothes could help us be there to provide advice when an older person needs somewhere to turn. The books you no longer read could help put on a dance class. And your bric-a-brac could help brighten someone's day by helping provide a regular friendship call.
