The Multibank Initiative: Join the UK-wide coalition of compassion

16 November 2023

Our country is facing a deepening social crisis this winter, with millions of people living in poverty or destitution, including 1 million destitute children.

Multibanks offer an emergency service for families fighting poverty, providing surplus essentials like nappies, toilet rolls, toothpaste and school uniforms, donated by businesses like Amazon and others, reducing waste, and shipped to beneficiaries.

Co-founded by Gordon Brown and Amazon UK, supported by many donors and volunteers, two multibanks serve each of Fife and Wigan, the next will serve Wales, and the aim for 2024 is to reach six multibanks in the UK.
