Irish Wheelchair Association charity shops are vital to our organisation. We not only provide local communities with new and lightly worn items at affordable prices, but our shops also provide us with an income source that directly funds essential services for people with physical disabilities.
Our charity shops are managed by a professional retail team and assisted by a large number of amazing volunteers and community employment trainees.
Irish Wheelchair Association charity shops give local communities a sustainable and ethical option when they wish to dispose of unwanted clothes, books, furniture and other household items.
The charity retail sector is not only built on sustainable principles, but it provides clothing to people at a price they can afford.
The clothing industry is said to be one of the most polluting industries in the world. By getting your clothes in an Irish Wheelchair Association charity shop, you can help our planet. All the while, supporting people with physical disabilities across Ireland.
