Local Aid practices community awareness for the needs and aspirations of young people with special needs, and provides specialist care and logistic help with transport and equipment.

Swansea has three Local Aid shops, selling clothes, toys, bedding, books and bric-o- brac and furniture. By donating your unwanted, good condition household items to Local Aid or other charities, you not only save landfill space but also support an excellent cause!

All proceeds raised by Local Aid go directly to providing services for children and community special needs, such as: horse riding for the disabled; a buddy’s scheme; work experience; and training schemes.

Further Information
Charity shops promote reuse, diverting useful items from being landfilled or incinerated. 100,000 tonnes of textiles pass through charity shops every year, saving the UK nearly £2 million in landfill tax alone! (London Recycling Fund Project)
Charity Shops reduces pressure on raw materials, energy, and labour, and promote sustainable development.

Training and Volunteer Opportunities
Our shops are run by a team of dedicated volunteers without whom we would not be able to operate. We rota the shop volunteers on a shift pattern of either 10am–2pm , 2pm–5pm although we are flexible to individual needs.

If you do not want to man the shops, we are always looking for volunteers who are willing to help with maintenance and cleaning. There is always something to do in our shops.

If you can help out in some way please contact the training officer on 07807 675255
