Ukraine collection point

by Lydia Spencer-Elliott |

As Russia’s brutal attack on Ukraine rages on, thousands of us have been searching for ways to help conflict victims on the ground in any way we can. Some have opted to donate money to one of the charities helping those in Ukraine, or to sponsor a Ukrainian refugee, and the government have now announced a new scheme that will allow UK citizens to host a Ukrainian refugee in their home.

But in the meantime, many charities have recommended donating essential items, including clean bedding, sleeping bags, sanitary items and new shoes to those in need.

But as many of these donation centres are small or independently run, it can often be tricky to locate the collections for Ukraine nearest to you. So, we’ve rounded up as many drop off points and collection points around the country where you can donate essentials and clothes for Ukrainian refugees.

What donations do Ukrainian refugees need?

Obviously we all want to make sure we're donating the right things to help Ukrainian refugees - a bag of old going out clothes is probably going to be less useful than children's clothes organised by size, or warm jumpers, for example. The first thing you can do is check with the charities you're donating to beforehand what they actually need. But as a guide, many drop off and collection points have been asking for practical items and things that will be useful in cold weather.

  • Foil survival blanketsSleeping bags

  • Sleeping mats

  • Toys

  • Nappies

  • Sanitary towels

  • Towels

  • First Aid Kits

  • Heat torches

  • Metal cups

  • Thermal clothing

  • Hairbrushes

  • Shampoos

  • Toothbrushes

  • Children's clothes

  • Bandages

  • Warm Socks

  • Gloves

  • Pre-Packed Camping Food

You don't have to be limited to second-hand items you've got at home - you can also order useful items new and have them sent straight on to a collection point.

Save the children even have an Amazon list set up where you can purchase specific items they need new and have them sent directly to the charity.
