Mind shops

You can find our shops in more than 150 communities around England and Wales, selling high quality items mostly donated by you.  

The money raised from our sales helps to support people in your local community through national campaigning, providing information and support through our helplines, website and publications, as well as your local Mind. We rely on your generosity to fund the important work we do.

 

Volunteer at your local shop

A fixture on our high streets since 1961, Mind shops are supported by our amazing volunteers. They're a dedicated bunch, who help us make sure that everyone with a mental health problem has somehwere to turn for advice and support. 

There's no need for volunteering to be a big, time-consuming commitment either - even an hour a week could make a huge difference. By joining one of our teams you’ll get the opportunity to learn new skills, gain qualifications, make new friends and build your confidence too. 

Whether it's sorting and pricing clothes, making sales or getting creative on the shop floor, there's plenty to help out with. Our volunteers also benefit from:

  • 25% discount on all donated items in store
  • free Mind membership
  • the opportunity to complete National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs)
  • the chance to gain new skills and experience in different roles in retail.

 

Volunteer with us

Donate to your nearest Mind shop

All of our shops will be pleased to accept clothing, accessories, books, DVDs, CDs, homewear, linens and children's games and toys.

We also have Mind furniture shops in Alvaston, Kings Heath, Hinckley and Syston which take donations of electrical goods, furniture and white goods.

Please take your donations to your local shop during opening hours.

If you can’t get to your local shop, please contact them to see if they offer a collection service.

Make your donation go further with Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer, you can make your donations worth 25% more to us at no extra cost to you. Simply fill in a Gift Aid form in one of our shops when you make your donation. This allows us to claim back the tax you have paid on your donation and is really valuable to us.
