The Cowshed provides support to people of all backgrounds in a time of personal crisis. The Cowshed supplies good quality cleaned and ironed clothes, toiletries, bedding, curtains and other essential items free to anyone in need. The clothes are donated from the general public as well as retailers and manufacturers, they are then sorted, washed and ironed at our distribution centre in Winnersh ready to be delivered or collected by social services, other health professionals or our clients from our Head Office in Hurst. The idea is that our clients feel they are receiving a gift to assist them in a time of crisis rather than some old clothes that are over worn, marked or damaged.
The people in need are referred to us through social services, churches, schools, doctors and other health professionals.
