More than just a charity shop
Our Charity Shop opened in Leamington in October 2016. This is a great opportunity for volunteers to work in our charity shop alongside supported volunteers and to raise much needed funds to enable us to keep supporting our clients.
12 Gloucester Street,
Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire,
Our supported volunteers are gaining confidence and experience with daytime volunteering opportunities. When ready, our clients also can move onto gain qualifications in customer service and retail. We also work with local employers to help our clients make the next step into the workplace.
Behind the charity shop is our drop-in area – which is a vital hub for our charity’s activities including our soup kitchen, courses and support sessions.
Our supported volunteers work towards qualifications at level 1 and 2 in:
- Leadership & Management
- Customer Service
Our work is only possible with the support of our local community. Thank you for your generous donations!
Our charity shop is currently closed. Please do not leave donations while the shop is closed.
