Shaw Trust charity shops re-opening strategy

12 June 2020
Updated 23 July 2020

All our shops are open from 10am – 4pm following current government guidelines for social distancing. We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance within our shops. As a result the number of customers in the premises will be restricted throughout the day.  

We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment in each shop and shared the results with the staff. All shops have cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures in place in line with current guidance. Where required we have put screens in place to separate people from each other. Fitting rooms will not be in operation.  

Each shop will have a distanced drop off point inside for donations and will have restricted days where donations will be accepted to safely isolate items. Please check with your local Shaw Trust shop to see which days they are accepting donations. 

Please note the following Shaw Trust shops are now open:

Porthcawl
Devizes
Handforth
Galashiels
Cowley
Reading
Caerphilly
Maidenhead
Swindon
Egham
Urmston
Bristol
