We are a charity and we need your help!

The Hive is a charity organisation, meaning we need help from people like you!

We know that not everyone has the time or the means to volunteer, but there are many other ways to support the work that we do.

There are many ways to contribute to the work that we do at The Hive...

We are completely self-funded and do not receive money from any of the local authorities we work in. Any donation, however small, is always gratefully received and put to good use.

£30 would buy art materials for one month.

£75 would pay for one person to attend a five-week independent living skills training course.

Recycling Collection

We have two recycling schemes at the drop-in to not only help the environment, but to raise extra money for our organisation.

We collect jewellery, currency and coins, phones and gadgets at our drop-in centre. Everything that is donated is turned into cash for our charity, recycled, and put to good use!

To find out more, come to our drop-in centre in Kingswood!


Clothes Bank

We have a clothes bank outside of our drop-in centre where we collect used clothing: old clothes, bags, and shoes. The clothes are collected on a monthly basis and we receive money based on the weight of the items we collect.



Volunteers are very important to us! We would not exist without them. We have many different activities, crafts, and events for our volunteers to get involved with.
