The Care Zone is a warehouse of good quality furniture, clothing, toys and household items – donated by church members and others in the community – that are given away free of charge to those that are in need in and around Peterborough.
Who can use the Care Zone?
Run by KingsGate Community Church, the Care Zone operates on a referral system.
Agencies in the city who work with the underprivileged and needy can register with the Care Zone and can then refer their clients to the team.
How do I donate items to the Care Zone?
Donations of good quality items to the warehouse are always welcome and will be a real blessing to those who have very little.
Bedding or furniture will only be accepted if in good condition and with fire retardant labels.
For Health and Safety reasons we cannot accept stained items, such as mattresses.
Please do not donate items that are broken or incomplete.
We want to offer good quality items to those who visit the warehouse.
Collections can be arranged for larger items
Want to volunteer?
We operate almost entirely by volunteers and would love to have you join us.
We have a variety of different volunteer roles from packing and sorting, cooking, training and furniture assembly.

Coronavirus update 16/4/2020
Care Zone has suspended its usual services. However, we are keeping our telephone line open to accept emergency referrals via telephone. We would class an emergency as someone with ill health, pregnant or with children with no bed to sleep on. We can only help if a referral has been given by a trained referral agency. We will do emergency deliveries only, and we cannot enter a persons property at this moment. So we will leave items outside the property/property building and the client is expected to find help if needed for moving the items inside the property.
We can accept donations if brought to our warehouse between the hours of 9-1 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.
