What we do

Curiosity Shop, Galway

"It's more than a Charity Shop"
Volunteer with the SVP Curiosity Shop in Galway.

The SVP Galway Area Council runs a clothing and furniture shop in the redeveloped dockland areas in Galway city. The enterprise provides employment opportunities for six people with learning difficulties and prides itself on being 'like a high street retailer', providing a much-needed service to the city of Galway and its hinterland.


We have all types of customers - from students to people who love a bargain to drama groups and, of course, people on low incomes trying to provide the best they can for their families. The surplus income is used to fund projects sponsored by SVP Galway Area Council.
