Donate to a Shelter Scotland Shop

Unfortunately all our shops are currently closed. Find out more

We are always grateful for donations to our Shelter Scotland shops; everything we receive helps us to do more for families facing bad housing and homelessness.

There are however a few things that sadly we're unable to take, and we'd hate for anyone to have a wasted journey to us, so please check the list below before donating your items.

What we accept

  • Good quality second-hand clothes
  • Books
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Good quality Furniture*
  • Electrical items*

What we can't accept

  • Items in poor condition
  • Damaged furniture
  • White goods

How to donate your goods

We welcome donations of good quality second-hand items to all our stores and you can drop your items off in person during opening hours. However we don’t want to leave anyone disappointed so if you have bulky items, or a lot to donate, please phone the shop to ensure they’ll be able to take your donation.

* Our Motherwell, Stockwell Street, and Rutherglen furniture shops receive donations of furniture.
