Social Enterprise Opportunity Shops

Op Shop crop

Family Life operates opportunity shops at Cheltenham, Chelsea, Highett and a pop-up shop in Black Rock, with the purpose of raising funds for the organisation.  These retail social enterprises are predominately run and staffed by volunteers.

The shops sell used goods donated by members of the public – which include clothing, furniture and general household items.

Profits go towards the Family Life PeopleWorx program, which is an employment, work experience, support and training program for young people and adults provided within the opportunity shops. For more information on PeopleWorx (Young People), click here.

Money raised at the Highett shop helps run Family Life’s Creating Capable Communities and PeopleWorx programs.
