Charity Shops

The opening of our first charity shop in Pennys Walk, Ferndown in 2017 marked a new dimension to both the work and the fundraising of Dorset Blind Association. The second charity shop opened in 2018 at Saxon Square, Christchurch.

Our shops are designed to not only raise much-needed income to fund our services, but are themselves a part of our service delivery. The shops include a mini equipment and advice resource centre to help to make this important service even more accessible to the public.

Our shops also provide opportunities for visually impaired people to volunteer to gain useful skills and experience.

Donations of good quality items are always welcome (no furniture please).
