Protective measures that Save the Children have put in place include placing donations and returns in isolation for 48 hours, installing till guards at till points and supplying hand sanitiser for staff, volunteers and supporters. Signage has been created to help manage social distancing and contactless payment will be preferred where possible too (click here for our full health and safety statement).
The approach to accepting donations will be different for each shop, depending on storage facilities so please call ahead when you’re ready to donate to check the best time for your local store.
Your preloved items will be hugely appreciated once we're back up and running, so please do hold onto anything you wish to donate until then or order a donation bag from us here
In the meantime our online shop is still open
