Our Charity Shops
We are excited to add charity shops to our fundraising activities. Our charity shops are unique as they also offer access to a Resource Centre for those living with sight loss.
Wiltshire Sight and Sight Support West of England are looking to open charity shops to support our work across the region. Currently we have our first fantastic charity shop open in Salisbury, located at 23 Catherine Street, Salisbury, SP1 2DQ, but look out for updates about our next opening!
Our shops are designed to be highly accessible to those living with sight loss, we have wide aisles, good lighting, high contrast colours for the till area and door frames and an accessible till system designed with visually impaired volunteers in mind.
By shopping with us, or donating to our shops, you are helping us in our work to support those living with sight loss. We receive no government funding for our core work so we rely all the various ways people support our charity to enable us to offer the support we do. We simply couldn’t do what we do without you!
Our charity shops are a unique concept, our aim is to not only have a high quality charity shop to raise funds, but to also offer local access to our services via an attached resource centre. Here anyone living with sight loss can visit their local Community Sight Loss Advisor in an accessible venue that is stocked with a range of products designed to help those living with sight loss Our linked Resource Centres are a place where it will be easy to access information, advice and guidance and see and try out helpful equipment. At our Salisbury shop our Sight Loss Advisor is available every Tuesday, you can make an appointment or just pop in to get a consultation. Check our our What’s On pages for exact details of your nearest Sight Loss Advisor. Follow the link for more information on our Resource Centres and what you might find at one.
