Donate your pre-loved clothes and support IWF's work to make a safer internet for all

We’re excited to partner with Collection4Clothes, a clothes recycling initiative that supports charities like ours in raising essential funds by donating second-hand clothes, shoes, handbags, purses, belts, trinkets and unwanted gifts.

Collection4Clothes offers a free and efficient service, collecting clothes and accessories at your doorstep. Once collected, these donations are sent to Eastern Europe, Africa or Asia, where they are resold at affordable prices. Items that can't be reused are ethically recycled, with the materials repurposed to create new products.

These funds will significantly support our mission to eliminate child sexual abuse online and protect countless children from further victimisation. And the best part? This comes at no cost to IWF or the person donating.

How the process works:

  • Fill a bag: Find a bag (of any type) and fill it with your no-longer-needed goods.
  • Book a collection: Book a date for collection online for a free collection from your home. Collection4Clothes operates its service nationwide, making it convenient for everyone.
  • Leave it out: Pop the bag on your doorstep on your scheduled collection date.
  • A HUGE thank you:  All the proceeds will go directly to the Internet Watch Foundation! £50 could support the IWF to ‘hash’ images of child sexual abuse, preventing them from being shared or uploaded to the internet.  

The partnership between the Internet Watch Foundation and Collection4Clothes is more than just a collaboration; it's a commitment to a safer online environment, sustainable practices and community involvement.

By donating your pre-loved clothes, you're not just decluttering your wardrobe; you're making a significant difference in the lives of many and helping to protect online child safety For those interested in supporting this initiative, visit the Collection4Clothes website to book a collection.


Together, we can make the internet a safer place and promote a more sustainable future.
