‘‘The Trussell Trust shop is so much more than a charity shop: it gives me a reason to get up in the morning.” – Volunteer
Our shops are designed to do more than just raise funds. Each shop aims to become a hub of the local community.
Through our shops, we do more than simply offer affordable goods for people on low incomes; we also lend a sympathetic ear for people in emotional distress, and create volunteering opportunities for everyone (including people with mental, social or physical difficulties). Our community shops can also serve as a distribution point for emergency food available to people in crisis through a local foodbank.
