We have more than 100 shops across the country with around 2,500 volunteers who generously give their time each week

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic most of our shops are currently closed. Please contact us on 0207 8414400 for more information.

Last year, our shops and volunteers helped raise over £11.2 million by selling donated goods through our retail shops which helps transform the lives of vulnerable children and young people.

Our high street stores - phased re-opening

Although we are keen to get our shops open and trading again as soon as possible, we will only do so once we have put the necessary measures in place to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers and customers.

In order to plan our re-opening we will need to follow government guidelines and although these state that some shops may start to open in June, we do not yet have the detailed guidance on what the criteria is likely to be.

We are currently working hard behind the scenes to start putting things in place now to ensure we will be ready to open as soon as it is safe to do so, but we are not in a position to give any individual shop re-opening dates as yet.

Thank you for showing an interest in our shops and your continued support of the children and young people we are here to support, please keep checking here for up to date information.  We would love to see you once we have re-opened!

Please postpone your donations

We are really appreciative of people donating items but we cannot currently process donations while our shops are closed. Please donate when our shops are back open. 

Thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult time.
