Wear One, Share One
Every item purchased from OutsideIn kickstarts our giving process where essential clothing is donated to someone experiencing homelessness. This is our Wear One, Share One model.
Wear One, Share One allows customers to donate brand-new clothing, specifically designed by us, every time they purchase. Our network of charities and organisations that we call 'Giving Partners' ensures the most highly requested items reach those who need them the most.
To-date, with your help we have donated over 198,000* Giving Items to people experiencing homelessness in the UK and beyond.
*As of July 2023
Meet Our Giving Items
Socks are the most frequently requested items among our Giving Partners. Our Socks are thick, absorbent and come in different colours so that the people they go to get to choose what they feel comfortable in. Socks are essential for comfort and foot health.
Headwear is so important, both in the warmer and the colder seasons. When it's warm we donate Caps which provide protection from the heat, and in the colder months we provide Thermal Beanies to keep the head warm.
During the warmer months we provide T-Shirts to offer those in need a change of clothes suitable for the season. We work with our Giving Partners to learn what style, fit and feel is best suited to meet the needs of their service-users.
Our Giving Partners
As a purpose-driven business, we partner with a collection of charities and organisations to distribute the items donated through our ‘Wear One, Share One’ giving model. We call these our 'Giving Partners'.
Not only does each Giving Partner distribute the items donated by your purchases directly to those who need them most, but they provide critical feedback which informs the designs, quantities, and types of items needed to meet the greatest needs of those experiencing homelessness.
With the support of our Giving Partner network, over 198,000* items of essential clothing have been given to people in need.

Have a look below at what some of them have said about us.
Liverpool Homeless Outreach
“All of the residents at DJK Recovery House in Liverpool have recently come out of homelessness and/or an addiction to drugs and alcohol. With the help of the Oi Fam, we supplied each of them with Oi Hats. Most of these guys have nothing at all and are seeking to rebuild their lives, and so, receiving something as simple as a hat shows that people like those at OutsideIn really do care.”
Soup Kitchen London
At the end of 2020, OutsideIn reached out to find out how they could help. They helped to raise a tremendous amount of money for us and, even more importantly, donated hundreds of essential clothing items that our guests were so grateful to have. Warm clothing during the winter is crucial to survival when you’re sleeping rough.
We are so proud to have OutsideIn as partners as we do our part to tackle homelessness in London.”
