Our first Settlement shop opened in 1975 in Sutton Coldfield and we now have 5 shops across Birmingham.
Something old, something new…
Charity shops are little treasure troves full of goods you thought you’d never find and ours are no different. As well as bagging yourself a bargain we get all sorts of interesting and quirky items in that could keep you pottering for hours!
If you’re the next Vivienne Westwood our shops are crammed full of vintage clothing just waiting to be customised into the next big thing. Birmingham Settlement’s charity shops are not just a place to get second hand items but you can also buy a range of brand new products, novelty items and collectables.
How to donate
Furniture and large items can be collected from your home. Just give your local store a call and they will be able to help you arrange collection. Unfortunately we are unable to take items of upholstery that do not have fire retardant labels due to health and safety laws. We are also unable to take items that are in unsaleable condition. Please discuss with the shop manager before arranging a collection if you are unsure about the suitability of the items you wish to donate.
Electrical goods can be donated to all Birmingham Settlement shops. Larger items can be collected as above and smaller goods will be taken in by your local shop manager. We carry out a full PAT test on goods prior to putting them on sale but would ask that only working items are donated.
Clothing, toys, books, DVDs and bric-a-brac of all types are accepted and can be taken to your nearest store.
For more details about donations, collections or volunteering at one of our shops, please contact your local Settlement shop.
Gift Aid enables us to claim 25% of the amount that your donated goods are sold for back from HMRC. This doesn’t cost you a penny but makes your donation go even further. If you are a UK taxpayer, let your local shop manager know and they’ll take a few details. Once the items you donated have sold we will get in touch with you to let you know how much extra we have been able to generate in Gift Aid – simple!
Most of our shops are open Mondays to Saturdays, 9am to 4.50pm – please contact your local shop if you need to confirm opening times.
