Give and Take Days

Give and Take days are great ways to re-use items instead of throwing them away.


Give and Take Days are events where people can swap good quality things they don’t want or need anymore for something they do – all for free.

You can organise your own Give and Take Day and bring people in your local community together. We’ve put together a toolkit to help you do so.

The toolkit is attached to this page and it's ideal if you run a community or voluntary group, or even if you just wanted to get a few friends together for an afternoon.

It has tips on running a successful event, help with publicity and advice about donations and recruiting volunteers.

Holding a Give and Take Day is a great way to meet new people, save money and stop perfectly good items from getting thrown away.
