The Community Shop

Having a sort out at home? Donations are always welcome – we will take just about anything as long as it is in reasonable condition. This includes electrical items which we can arrange to be PAT tested.

The Community Shop was opened by Kirsty Williams AM in June 2014, following a need to provide sustainable income to enable The Arches services to continue.


It sells a selection of good quality vintage and second hand clothes, household and other items and seasonal products (Halloween, Christmas etc.)

The Kids corner has an extensive stock of nearly new children’s and babies clothes from newborn to age 14.


There is also a large selection of books, DVDs and videos, games, nursery equipment, toys and learning materials.

The Community Shop is run by volunteers with support from Arches staff. We are always on the look-out for more volunteers – both in the shop and sorting out donated goods including washing and ironing.

Opening hours are 9:30am to 4:30pm Mondays to Fridays.
