You'll get more than just retail therapy when you shop at one of Save the Children's many op shops, situated in convenient locations around Australia.
Not only will you pick yourself up an array of recycled fashion pieces, toys, books and even some vintage and modern day gems, your purchases will help to create better lives for children in Australia and overseas. Our op shops are staffed by friendly volunteers who only add to the unique shopping experience.
Donations of items to sell in our retail shops and volunteers are greatly appreciated. So, if you're looking for a new home for your books, bric-a-brac, furniture, clothing, and homewares gathering dust on shelves, or you're wanting to make space in your wardrobe for some new threads, please contact your nearest shop.
*Our shops are unable to accept mattresses.
Interested in Volunteering?
Our volunteers are amazing people who give their time to support our programs, op shops, events, programs and offices throughout Australia.
We have volunteers ranging from 18 to 85-years-old. We value the support of every single one of our volunteers!
Volunteering as a Retail Assistant in our Op Shops is a fun, rewarding and fulfilling experience. You'll be taught the daily operations of a Save the Children Op shop in an encouraging and supportive environment. Our volunteers are a diverse group of people with varied skills, who enjoy working in a team environment.
Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.
We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict %u2013 we are there on the ground.
We want our Op Shops to be known as a great place to work as well as a welcoming place to shop! We understand that we can all make a difference to our team environment, to make it a warm, rewarding and a fun place to be!
