If you are unable to donate items to us in person, we have a volunteer who may be able to help out by collecting your items.

We are only able to collect certain items. The volume of items should be both not exceed several bags of clothing or equivalent, and be enough to warrant a car journey.

With this in mind you can apply to have donations collected by completing this collection form and returning it to our resources coordinator at the following email address. They will reply to you letting you know if collection of your items is possible.
Please access the collection form using the links below and return it in one of the following ways:


1.) EMAIL to 

with the subject line DONATION COLLECTION


2. POST to 72-74 Shadwell Street, Birmingham, B4 6HA 

Thank you for your desire to donate to St. Chad's Sanctuary.


The Sanctuary also needs volunteers!

please show them our volunteering page!

Urgent Needs for Asylum Seekers



We use all donated goods to benefit the asylum seekers and refugees we support. Occasionally, if we have items which are unsuitable for distribution at the Sanctuary, we either offer them to charities supporting other vulnerable groups, or sell them to raise valuable funds for our work.
