About YMCA charity shops

There are more than 90 YMCA charity shops across England and Wales. Money raised in these stores through the sale of donated goods is used to help transform the lives of the young people we work with in almost 700 communities.

Our amazing shops sell a large range of items including second-hand retro, high street and designer clothing, shoes and other accessories, books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl, bric-a-brac, electrical goods, furniture, home-wares, games, sports equipment and jewellery. So whatever you are looking for, you’re likely to find a bargain.

For more information, please visit your nearest YMCA shop.

Volunteering in our shops

Without the dedication of hundreds of volunteers, we would not be able to run our shops. If you would like to find out about volunteering opportunities, please contact your local YMCA Shop directly.
