Telford Community Store is managed by Telford Crisis Support and provides a one stop shop for those in crisis. It’s also a shop window that benefits the community and helps raise funds for local charities. It’s an open and collaborative project for Telford Crisis Network members to join.
Founding partner organisations include:
At the heart of the store is Shropshire Community Project, a social enterprise that donates 70% of its profits to Telford Crisis Support to fund partner projects. Charity partners are using the Store for both service delivery and to retail and raise charitable funds collaboratively.
It enables someone in crisis to be able to be referred in quickly by a partner organisation and access advice and support, get food, clothing, crockery, cutlery, bedding and receive other items that are essential if they have nothing.
In the past 12 months, not only have we just sold furniture, the store has provided young people with work experience and new skills, we’ve given food to those in need, we’ve supported various local projects by fund raising and hosting events, we’ve given blankets and tents to the homeless as a temporary measure as well as linking them with Telford’s homeless support links, and we’ve managed to raise a lot of money to support local charities the give back to our community.
