With three very unique stores, The Brick offers a variety of items at each of our retail sites including furniture, electricals, clothing, homeware, children’s toys and nursery items.

It is only with the generous support of the local community that we can continue to run and expand our retail department within the borough, providing quality new and used items at affordable prices; not only this but we save thousands of items every year from ending up in landfill by accepting donations at the shop door or via our collection service.

Don’t be fooled, the retail shops aren’t just your good old local charity shops, they are also vital in providing welfare support to people in our community. In partnership with Wigan council, we provide ‘welfare packages’, which can include sofa’s, dining tables and chairs, beds and much more! This helps the move into own accommodation that much easier and makes a house much more like a home. But, we don’t just stop at furniture welfare, thanks to the regular donations of clothing we receive, we are able to provide clothing free of charge to those who are vulnerable in our community, this may include people who are rough sleeping, people who have fled domestic violence, or even people we are supporting to find work too.

The Brick prides itself on it’s position in the community and the shops are just a small part of that, however they provide much needed support to lots of different people, and provide a safe welcoming space for local people.

Do you have preloved or new furniture to donate ?

We are always in need of good quality items for our Furniture Welfare Packages. These go to families or individuals who have found accommodation and a safe place to call home. Often this is unfurnished, so donations from businesses and our local community are vital in providing items we take for granted such as beds, wardrobes, sofas, tables and chairs.

If you have furniture items to donate, please fill in this form and we will contact you with collection details Furniture Collection Form (jotform.com)

The Brick Shop – Wigan


The Brick Shop – Leigh

The Brick Project offers a huge range of services to people who are homeless, in poverty or facing debt crisis. This includes Crisis Intervention, Hospital to Home, Asset Coaching and Wigan’s largest Foodbank. As its name suggests, it provides a safe, solid building block for people in crisis to begin rebuilding their lives.

The Brick Shop is a charity shop selling donated goods, often to people on low incomes. The shop gives clothes free of charge to people referred by Wigan Council. The shop is one of the main hubs within its community.


The Brick Works offers training to increase the employment opportunities for people who are unemployed for a variety of reasons. This may include homelessness or recently housed people referred.


The Brick Giving aims to put an end to poverty and homelessness in Wigan and Leigh. Our #BrickbyBrick campaign is working to raise £175,000 to purchase The Brick Works and make sure no one in our community is left behind.


The Brick Re-Use has been set up to help educate people in the Wigan Borough about recycling and re-use. We also turn unwanted goods into lovingly restored furniture for families in need.
