Donate to a Shelter Scotland Shop

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*

*not available in all Shelter Scotland shops. Currently, the only shop in Scotland accepting furniture is Motherwell

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.

If space allows, our shops are occasionally able to receive donations of furniture. Again, please do call first to check the shop is able to receive your items.
