Looking to bag a bargain, declutter your life, or volunteer? You can do all three at our charity shops in Manchester.

About our shops

Age UK Manchester shops are great places to find bargain clothes, books, DVDs, household goods, and even furniture.

Our shops are managed by experienced staff who are supported by a friendly team of dedicated volunteers who are always ready to help with any donations or purchases you bring or make.

To find out more about your nearest shop, their opening hours, what they stock and how to donate items, select your nearest shop below.

What can I donate?

We accept a wide variety of items, including:

  • Women’s, men’s and children’s clothing
  • Accessories including handbags, shoes, belts, ties and jewellery
  • Quality homeware such as glassware, ornaments and kitchenware
  • Books, CDs, DVDs, games and Blu-ray discs
  • Good quality toys, jigsaws and games
  • Furniture (view our shops for further details, if donating furniture)

Unfortunately there are a few items that we can't accept, as we're unable to sell them in our shops. These include damaged, broken, incomplete or unsafe items, safety equipment, videotapes and cassettes, real fur, coat hangers and large household items such as duvets, pillows and bulky curtains.

If you'd like more information on what you can donate, please contact your nearest shop, call us on 0161 817 2356 or email
