Epilepsy Op Shops

The Epilepsy Foundation Op shops raise important funds to support our work. To do this we require quality donations of saleable items.

What items can be donated?

Preferred donations include:

  • Clothes
  • Toys
  • Furniture
  • Homewares
  • Electrical items

If you have items you would like to donate which follow the guidelines above please complete the form below.

What items are not accepted?

To help reduce our costs we are not able to accept any items which are broken, damaged, torn, ripped, stained or faulty. Items donated in this condition must be disposed of and this adds a significant cost to the running of our op shops.

Please note that, in some instances, we are unable to accept white goods/electrical items and mattresses due to Government regulations. Please  phone Darren on 0425 799 413 or email us to check whether your items are suitable for donation.

Please allow five to seven days for pick up.  Unfortunately due to limited resources we do not service all areas.

We are unable to accept any items that are stained, torn or in need of repair. Please note that we do not accept mattresses.

To organise pickups of quality furniture please enter your details including your postcode with a brief description and photo of your donation. A member of our team will be in contact with you within two working days. If there are several items of saleable quality, we will organise a pick-up in Melbourne metro areas.

Please complete the form below if you would like to arrange pick up of your donation items and one of our team will be in contact with you soon:

Please note that collections are usually done between 10am and 4pm on a mutually agreed day, any special instructions are to be communicated before the collection day e.g. Item will be left under carport.

The safety of our team is very important to us. On arrival at the collection site our driver will assess if the item is too heavy to lift, or if moving the item presents unacceptable risk to the health or safety of our staff. We ask that if you have a dog at the collection site that it is suitably restrained prior to the agreed collection time.

Thank you for your donation to help people living with epilepsy.

 

Volunteering at an Op Shop

Being a volunteer is a fantastic way of giving back while raising funds to help people who need it the most. Volunteers get to draw on and share their own experiences and also learn new skills in a professional and supportive working environment. If your motivation for volunteering includes a belief in our work at the Epilepsy Foundation, we will endeavour to find the best option to meet your needs.

Epilepsy Foundation volunteers gain the satisfaction of helping people living with epilepsy while making new friends and community connections. Enrich your life and the lives of others – become a volunteer.  Click here to find out more about volunteering.

*We offer confirmation certificates for 50 or more volunteering hours and placements for retail students.
