Supporting local people who need it most

Wesley Mission Newcastle Retail

Wesley Mission Newcastle Retail is responsible for the collection and distribution of clothing, furniture and household items donated by residents.

People in need are assured of good quality clothing and other basic household items at extremely reasonable prices, or at no charge if they are introduced through our welfare services.

The income generated by our shop and warehouse helps fund other Wesley Mission Newcastle  programs and, in particular, accommodation and emergency relief services.

Our opportunity shops also offer a meeting point for the local community.

We are a self-funding service, largely run by volunteers. Our truck collects clothing, furniture and household items from a wide range of sources and delivers them to our warehouse and shop.

Our goods are usually sourced from existing customers and community members:

  • referrals from other charities
  • business partnerships
  • deceased estates

We have only one paid staff member. Volunteers help at the shop, driving the truck and helping to load, unload and sort the goods. We are unable to collect or sell electrical appliances or whitegoods.

Clothing, furniture and household items are available for sale at our Islington warehouse and Wallsend shop, and are distributed by emergency relief. Donated furniture is also used to furnish Wesley Mission Newcastle’s singles accommodation.

Some of our donors are extremely generous and we have received many fine antiques and collectibles. These items are retailed at the maximum possible value, with the proceeds being used to support local initiatives.

Wesley Mission Retail is continuing to grow community partnerships with other services and support the community.
