Dorset is a famous county, not only for its beautiful landscape, but for the generosity of its residents. So much so that many of the clothes banks which you’ll find below are often full to the brim with donated items. You’ll find donation centres in Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, and many more towns in the area.

Most of the clothing banks will accept all types of items such as jackets, pants, dresses, shoes, socks, shirts, and more. If you want to donate something a little out of the ordinary such as electronics, appliances, furniture, or other items, please give them a call beforehand to check.

Not only do charitable organisations realise there’s a need for helping people, but local councils are also reaching out and giving assistance where they can.

Some of the largest charitable organisations that operate these donations locations throughout the county include The Salvation Army, The Fire Fighters Charity, and The Air Ambulance Service. If you’d like to support something a bit more local, there are plenty of them as well.

Remember to only donate clothes that can still be used. If they’ve got holes in them, or a stained beyond use, throw them out instead. As well, if you see the clothing bank is already full or overflowing, wait a few days until it’s emptied or find another location. Some clothing banks have had to be removed because of the nuisance of people leaving their clothes outside of the bin.
