Established in 1996, Clothes Aid is a social business enterprise and are the UK’s largest fully licensed, commercial clothes collection company. Working alongside big, small, national and regional charities they have contributed over £9 million to UK charities with the great British public’s donations.
Their business model is tried and tested. By posting collection bags door to door, the public fill the bags, under no obligation, with unwanted good quality clothes and fashion accessories, and leave them for collection. Using this method, more than 45,000 households are able to donate on a weekly basis, hassle-free. The clothes are then sold on to European department stores offering second hand products and Clothes Aid is about to give upto 95% of the profits back into UK charities.
As a low-risk franchised business, after a small initial investment, earning potential is expected to be exceptional with the added benefit of being part of an organisation able to raise £1 Million for UK charities per year. Managing a small team of 2-4 people, each franchisee arranges the distribution and collection of the charity bags in a chosen area. The clothes are weighed and sold to third parties with generates an income with a proportion going to Clothes Aid funds. With ongoing support, Clothes Aid will assist new franchisees with collection licenses and exemption certificates obtained from local Government.
