What we do
Charity Retail Ireland is the umbrella group for charities who operate shops to fundraise for their causes and we are funded mainly by our charity members. Our members range from large national charities to local, community based charities and our 42 members operate 500 shops nationwide. All our members are registered with the Charities Regulator and have CHY registration with the Revenue Commissioners. All members have also signed up to our Code of Charity Retailing that is a condition of their membership.
If you buy from or donate to a charity shop displaying the Charity Retail Ireland membership badge in their window, you can be assured that it is run by a registered charity and is a genuine charity shop. By supporting your local charity shop you will be supporting many essential services for your community and vital overseas aid.

Our new membership badge is appearing in shops now.
