About This Shop
The Children’s Society is a leading children’s charity committed to making childhood better for all children in the UK.
We take action to prevent, rescue and support children facing a life trapped in a vicious circle of fear and harm; a vicious circle driven by violence, neglect, poverty, and discrimination, which destroys childhood and wrecks community living.
We give children the hope and confidence they need to face the future with optimism. In particular, we help children in trouble with the law, young runaways at risk on the street, disabled children, young refugees and children whose parents are affected by alcohol and drug misuse.
We operate a national network of projects and children’s centres, while our research and campaigning influences everyone from the general public to decision-makers about childhood issues. We are proud to work in partnership with the local and national government to deliver unique solutions for local needs.
Our work depends on donations and support of the general public and local companies. By donating unwanted items, you will not only be helping local children by supplying our high-street shops but, because we sell what we don’t need to other organisations, you will be helping disadvantaged children abroad as well.
