Melbourne Op Shops


Melbourne Op Shops

Regardless of what you call them Op Shops, Opportunity Shops, Bargain Centres or Charity shops, they are all great places to pick-up a bargain and provide financial support to our many charities.

-:- Arthritis Victoria mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of musculoskeletal conditions across Victoria and maximise the resources available for this purpose. Their philosophy is to pursue empowerment and innovation for consumers, their carers and their supporting communities and advocate with and on behalf of consumers on matters affecting their quality of life. You can make a difference by visiting their op shops, see this link for locations: www.arthritisvic.org.au

-:- Australian Animal Protection Society was first incorporated in 1972 to address the need for an animal shelter in the South Eastern region of Melbourne. The shelter handles mainly dogs and cats and aims to return as many as possible to their owners or re-home them to good homes. Apparently their Moorabbin op shop is the best in Melbourne. A list of their locations can be seen at this link: www.aaps.org.au

-:- Australian Red Cross volunteers since 1914 Australian Red Cross volunteers have been responding to need at local, national and international levels – in fact whenever disaster or emergencies strike, they are there. Today they have more than 30,000 volunteers and deliver more than 60 local services and programmes, mostly funded by public donation and corporate partnerships. For a full list of Red Cross charity shops click on this link: www.redcross.org.au

-:- Brotherhood of St Laurence was the vision and creation of Fr Gerard Tucker, a man who combined his Christian faith with a fierce determination to end social injustice. The Brotherhood has developed into an independent organisation with strong Anglican and community links. Today, they continue to fight for an Australia free of poverty. See the link for a list of their stores: www.bsl.org.au

-:- Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria is contacted by thousands of people each year, requesting information, support and counseling around epilepsy. Through our commitment to raising the profile of epilepsy, they hope to significantly reduce the burden that epilepsy can bring into people’s lives. See a list of their charity shops at this link: www.epinet.org.au

In all their programs - meals, crisis support, health and personal care, employment training, sport, recreation, home care, housing, hostel care and support for women working in street prostitution - staff and volunteers endeavour to create and maintain a sense of community - the opportunity for people to 'belong'.
