Charity Retail Association
The Charity Retail Association is the only body in the United Kingdom that represents the interests of charity retailers. Our members run more than 8,600 shops between them.
The charity retail sector generates more than £270m surplus funds per year from more than a billion pounds of turnover, and harnesses the skills of more than 230,000 volunteers nationwide. Charity retail promotes charitable causes and an environmentally sustainable retail experience.
We work to:
- Influence and monitor legislation and regulations that affect charity retailing.
- Promote the benefits of charity retailing to the environment, the community and to charity.
- Be the major source of expertise and up-to-date information on issues affecting the charity retail sector.
- Promote good practice.
- Work closely with other relevant organisations to support our members.
