Do you collect items?

As we are run by volunteers we are unable to offer a collection service. However, our offices in central Brighton are very accessible by bus, train and car.

What about safety standards?

There are some mandatory safety standards for particular items such as: prams/buggies, cots/cotbeds and highchairs.

I'm interested in volunteering with you

We’d love to have you – there’s always plenty to do and the more helpers the better! Please email for a volunteer application form.

Do you have a list of items ?

Yes please see this list of items we can rehome.

Why do you need money when you're jut recycling items?

There are big running costs to having our wonderful building where we can receive, store and sort all the donations. Also in addition to the rent and utilities, Pelican Parcels also pays for other items such as new mattresses for cots and cotbed, or for formula and nappies and a range of other items. It all adds up! 

Should I clean my pram or highchair before donating it to you?

Yes please! We are a small team and if donated things arrive clean and ready to go then that speeds up the process of helping families.

I have a other furniture (sofas, table and chairs etc) I would like to donate...

We can recommend that for these items you contact Emmaus – a charity that helps the homeless.
