Free pre-loved outdoor kit and equipment for low-income families with KitSquad

KitSquad assists low-income people to get into the outdoors by supplying free, pre-loved kit and equipment. It’s the only nationwide scheme that supplies donated second-hand adventure gear to low-income individuals to enable them to get outdoors wearing or using the appropriate gear.

Individuals on means-tested benefits can apply for equipment via the website. Donations of kit including waterproof jackets and trousers, sleeping bags, rucksacks, tents, hiking boots and more, are also needed. See the website Welcome to Kitsquad – Donated Adventure Gear for a full list of clothing and equipment that can be donated, details of where to send, as well as information on how to support the initiative financially.
