Our op shops have been operating across Victoria for over 60 years.

If you’re looking for something to wear and you want to help others, shopping at your local op shop is a great way to do both.

You can donate quality goods, bag a bargain or even volunteer your time.

Whichever way you want to help, you will make a difference in your community.

Uniting op shops raise funds for programs and services in local communities.

Local emergency relief programs are the main beneficiary. Other Uniting services supported through op shops include:

  • Breezeway Meals Program in Ballarat
  • Hartley’s Community Dining in Prahran
  • Lifeline in Ballarat
  • Meals for Change in Ballarat.

Some of our shops in Victoria have reopened as COVID-19 restrictions ease.

Find out which shops in your region are operating and/or accepting donations.

It is our dedicated volunteers who keep our op shops running to raise funds for our services and offer affordable goods to local communities.

This National Op Shop Week, we thank them for all that they do, especially during these trying times.

We would also like to thank everyone who supports our op shops by donating and buying goods.
