Our Shops

We're reopening!

Following a lockdown of almost four months, our network of charity shops in Ireland are set to reopen.

We take the health of our customers, staff and volunteers seriously, and have put into place a range of measures to ensure that your visit to a Self Help Africa charity shop is, first and foremost, safe. 

Should you have unwanted goods that you would be prepared to recycle to a new home through our shops, we would love to hear from you. Information opening is contained below.

Reopening – grab a bargain and support our work

Self Help Africa’s network of charity shops around Ireland, are set to reopen. If you have goods that you are prepared to donate, we would love to hear from you.

If you have a couple of hours a week to spare, why not volunteer some to help out and meet great new friends in the process. Get involved by giving your local shop a call on the number below or just popping by and saying hello.

Donate to the shops

We all have items taking up space at home, why not bag them up and drop them in to your local shop. You’ll be freeing up space in your own life and helping raise funds that can potentially change a life in Africa for ever.
