Wrap Up London is back

This November is the ninth year of Wrap Up London!

Drop off your unwanted coats at our volunteer powered collections at six London Underground stations from 11th - 13th November. The coats are redistributed to local charities and community groups who directly offer support to people who are homeless, refugees, older people, people fleeing domestic violence, and those at risk through living in poverty.

For people facing crisis, the impact of receiving a coat can go further than just keeping warm. The coats collected by Wrap Up London offer a real opportunity for positive change. When a person at risk makes contact with a charity to collect a coat they receive practical help from that organisation and have the opportunity to accept ongoing support to change their situation long-term.

Host a collection

Whether it’s at your school, place of work, place of worship, favourite club, local store, or your neighbourhood, why not host your own collection?

How to host a collection:

1. Assemble your team – ask your friends, family and colleagues to get involved and spread the word.

2. Collect the coats – we take all kinds! We launch on the 11th November 2019, but feel free to choose your own start date.

3. Send the coats – either in-person or via post to one of our four Safestore locations.

Most importantly, don't forget to have fun! Use the #WrapUpLondon hashtag on social media and celebrate your own #HandsOnHeroes!

All coats must be donated by 24th November 2019.

Donate Money

It costs as little as £3 to collect and distribute a warm coat. Your morning latte could help keep someone warm all winter.
