About YouK

Supporting UK jobs, our public services and the environment

How your shopping can change the UK

Shopping locally and nationally results in thriving UK businesses, stronger local communities, reduced dependence on imports, lower product miles, your money kept in the UK, and a growing economy that can afford better schools, hospitals and social care.

Buying as local as possible lowers your impact on the environment

Every purchase of goods ‘made in the UK’ helps support UK jobs

In turn, the taxes paid by workers and companies pays for UK public services

With YouK you can

  • Shop for any consumer product that the UK makes, produces or designs
  • Find new UK brands
  • Discover current deals, bargains and promotions
  • Check out what's made in any local UK area
  • Gift ideas for all ages and events from around the UK
  • Shop according to your values: vegan, organic, ethical and many more
  • Get news on product areas, UK entrepreneurs, environmental issues and more

Every time you choose a product made in the UK, everyone in the UK wins

A UK worker is anybody of any race, religion, nationality, colour, gender, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, disability or marital status, who works in the UK legally.
