Contact Us

Thank you for getting in touch with Tools for Self Reliance. It may take us a little longer than normal to get back to your messages.

Tool Donations

To help us manage and process incoming donations, please bring your tools, sewing machines, haberdashery items and ply wood to our Netley Marsh workshops only on a Monday and Tuesday, between 10:00am – 4:00pm.

If you are making a special trip, or travelling a long distance, please give us a call first on 02380 869697.

We also have a network of volunteer collectors across the country who can collect donations – to find out if there is a collector in your area, please contact us.

    Potential partners

    Please note: We sometimes get asked about sending tools to countries other than Ghana, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia or Malawi. Because we work closely with partner organisations in these countries this is where we focus our efforts.
