Small change can make a big difference: register for an individual charity box and you’ll see exactly how your unwanted coins can help the lives of disadvantaged young people.

House Box from the 1950s and a modern House box

Our charity collection box holders have traditionally been part of local networks of collectors but due to popular demand we can now offer everyone the chance to donate in this simple and easy way.

Our new individual box scheme now allows you to collect loose change in your home and donate without the need to be part of a local network.

Register for your new box to make a big difference with your small change, and help provide support for young people like Jenny.

Jenny's story


For over five years, Jenny’s step mum abused her in an awful way. Lit cigarettes and bleach were thrown in her face and she was even beaten so badly that she ended up in hospital. Feeling unwanted and depressed, Jenny, who’s 16, started to cut herself a lot, and take drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. But the pain didn’t go away, and Jenny became suicidal.

Thankfully, Jenny found out about our CheckPoint project in Torbay and her life finally started to change for the better. We gave her emergency accommodation and put her in touch with Juliet, someone Jenny describes as ‘the best counsellor ever’. Read more about Jenny’s story.
