Get the Most From Your Leftover Budget with Charity Retail Learning


At this time of year, you can find yourself with a bit of money left in your expenditure budgets.

Sometimes it’s because you’ve managed to get better deals than you’d hoped. Other times planned and budgeted-for work just hasn’t happened.  That may be because of things like time pressures and staff shortages – or just dealing wit those curve balls that can come out of the blue in our sector.

Well, here’s the good news. We have a way that you can put that underspend to good use – and will reap rewards for you well into the future.

With over 3000 total learners benefiting from CRL courses in 2023, and we’d love you to be part of the 2024 Charity Retail Learning family! Visit Charity Retail Learning to view all we have to offer.

Invest in your team

Investing in your team is always a good move. Motivating, upskilling, valuing and supporting staff and volunteers through training opportunities is a massive factor in any charity retailer’s success. And Charity Retail Learning can help provide you with all of that.

Here’s how:

  • All our content is completely focused on charity retail, making the training relevant and resonant from the outset
  • Our team support you every step of the way, making signing up and managing your team’s training quick and easy
  • It’s simple to access, with our click-through courses all accessible from a laptop, tablet or phone
  • Our Subscription offer gives your whole team of staff and volunteers access to all of our content at a massive discount
  • Individual courses start at just £25 plus VAT, making them affordable for every charity.
  • We provide reports for you to see how your team is progressing – and certificates for every learner when they pass their course

Our learners love our courses!

We’ve supported thousands of charity retailers through their learning with us. Here’s what some of them have to say:

“Excellent course and tutor, information was so relevant and helpful”

“This is a very informative course, and even though I’ve been involved with Gift Aid for some time I learnt some golden nuggets of information. The pitch and pace were excellent”

“Tutor was amazing – didn’t bombard me with info but made sure I knew all the relevant stuff – and also gave me a chance to do exercises based on my own shop”

“This course is so informative, gives a clear overview, offers best practice, and really gets you thinking differently about how to approach your work.”

Keeping it simple 

Because we’re charity retailers, we understand the challenges and restrictions you can face in so many areas of your work. So we’ve designed our services to be as easy as possible for everyone involved.

Whether you’re a Head of Retail wanting to upskill your team, a Learning & Development lead looking for relevant and great value training, or a Shop Manager taking a course in the back room of your shop – you can relax and let us sort it all out for you.

Bridging the Gap: Advocating for VAT Reform in Charity Retail and Circular Communities






This is a guest post by
Billy Farrell,
Assistant Director of Retail at Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland

 

In the journey towards sustainable living and environmental stewardship, the mantra of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle serves as our guiding light. Yet, amidst our efforts to repurpose goods and foster circularity, an unexpected obstacle emerges: Value Added Tax (VAT) regulations.

While upcycling remains zero-rated VAT, the transformation of items into new purposes often triggers VAT obligations, hindering the endeavours of charity shops, independent small makers, and Community Interest Companies (CICs) across the UK.

Repurposing, as a precursor to recycling, holds immense potential in fostering circularity within communities, particularly in Scotland. By prioritising repurposing before recycling, Circular Communities Scotland and Zero Waste Scotland advocate for a more sustainable approach to consumption and waste management. Repurposing not only diverts items from landfills but also conserves resources by extending product lifespan.

Members of Stitch the Gap

Unsung Heroes of the Stitch the Gap team

However, the imposition of VAT on repurposed goods poses a significant challenge to realising this vision. Activities such as painting a wardrobe remain zero-rated VAT, yet repurposing endeavours like transforming a shirt into a cushion cover suddenly incur VAT obligations. This regulatory hurdle stifles innovation and undermines the economic viability of repurposing initiatives, hindering progress towards circularity and environmental stewardship.

Charity shops emerge as unsung heroes in this narrative, serving as vital conduits for repurposing and reuse. Operating a network of forty shops across Scotland, Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland is deeply committed to promoting sustainability and circularity. Collaborations with entities like Stitch the Gap, a CIC specialising in repurposing donated linen into tote bags, exemplify their dedication to sustainable practices.

By providing a platform for pre-loved items to find new homes, charity shops contribute significantly to waste diversion and sustainable consumption practices. Yet, the VAT framework threatens to impede their efforts to repurpose goods effectively, limiting the impact of their sustainability initiatives.

To overcome these barriers, concerted action is necessary. Circular Communities Scotland and the Charity Retail Association, representing charity shop leaders and lobbying government respectively, must advocate for VAT reform. Aligning VAT policies with circular economy principles and providing exemptions or incentives for repurposing activities can foster innovation and bolster circular communities.

In conclusion, by addressing VAT challenges, we can unlock the full potential of repurposing and create a more sustainable and resilient future for Scotland and beyond. Let us unite in advocating for VAT reform, bridging the gap between charity retail and circular communities, and paving the way towards a greener, more sustainable world.

How can I improve charity retail recruitment, retention and performance?


The current success we’re seeing across charity retail is brilliant news.

But despite this, recruitment and retention remain a massive challenge, with stores sometimes being forced to close due to lack of staff and volunteers.

So how do we make sure we can build – and keep – the right team to make sure we’re taking advantage of the hugely buoyant market?

Invest in your team

Retail teams are often overlooked when it comes to learning and development. Mandatory training can be all that’s on offer – and frequently this is aimed at non-retailers, therefore limiting it’s resonance and impact.

We see this as a missed opportunity – and a disservice to your retail teams. Investing in them by providing relevant and engaging training can help improve recruitment, motivation and retention.

How Learning & Development can help

Making good choices about investment your teams when planning budgets is essential. Take a look at these statistics:

  • 94% of employees say that they would be more willing to stay in a corporation that invests into employee training and development.
  • 86% of millennials would remain at their job if offered better training & development courses
  • Companies that offer professional development opportunities have 34% higher retention rates
  • Companies providing comprehensive training programmes have a 218% higher income per employee than those that invest less*

The Charity Retail Conference 2023 – an amazing couple of days


We’re just home from the Charity Retail Conference in Harrogate. We’re still feeling the energy, excitement and love for preloved that was palpable over the two days.

What an event! We never stopped chatting to all the amazing folk there….so much so that Vicki even lost her voice – and we’re definitely not used to her being quiet!  🤣

For us, the highs were:

💚 How positive everyone felt about how our amazing sector is performing just now. Preloved is definitely top of the sustainability agenda and as a sector we’re all stepping up to meet the new demand and keep ahead of the game.

💚 Hearing the fabulous stories of the award winners – hands up everyone who quickly wiped away a tear when the Young Volunteer Award was announced….. 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️.

💚 Seeing the amazing reaction to our Charity Retail Learning subscription package. Partnering with the Charity Retail Association to help inspire and upskill retail teams makes us so proud – and we were delighted that so many of you wanted to sign up for a subscription.

CRL subscription package flyer 2023

💚 Attending our good friend Ngozi Lyn Cole’s EDI session. Creating an inclusive sector is all our responsibility and we’re proud to work with Ngozi on this journey.

💚 Going to the Thriftify pre-conference evening and hearing from influencers about their take on preloved, sustainable fashion. They are the future and we love them! (And PS, how AMAZING was Emily from Thriftify’s orange dress?! 😍)

💚 Seeing our I Charity Shops Pride badges being worn with pride all around the Conference.  And if you haven’t already done it – why not enter your shops’ displays into our Pride Display competition?  We’re posting videos of entries every week until the closing date on our YouTube channel so make sure you check them out. 

💚 Seeing all our old friends and making new ones.

Our sector is a wonderful thing – and Conference is always a brilliant place to celebrate that. Thank you to the CRA team for pulling off yet another first rate event, to all those we spoke with that visited our stands, to the people who came along to our sessions – and just to charity retail for being such an important part of our – and so many others – lives for such a long time.

Here’s to 2024!

Charity Retail Conference 2023 – are you as excited as we are?


Here at The Consultancy we’re getting very excited for the 2023 Charity Retail Association conference in Harrogate.

We’ve got new stands, new activities (including a free Lucky Dip – who doesn’t love one of those?!) and even some new people coming along with us.

So to help you get to know us better, we’re each sharing our answers to 3 Very Important Questions:

1 What’s your favourite thing about charity retail?

2. What’s the best thing you ever bought from a charity shop (online or bricks & mortar)?

3. What are you most excited about for the future of charity retail? 

Here we go…..

 

Jayne (Founder & Director & Co-Founder of Charity Retail Learning)

Favourite thing:

Charity shops are all about goodness – good for the planet, good for the pocket, good for a vibrant high street, good for the community, and good for the parent charity. Seriously, what’s not to love?!

Best buy:

My Stella McCartney Adidas trainers, from RSPCA Glossop for £10! I wear them all the time.

Future:

The sector is awash with opportunities and possibilities. Sales and profits are better than ever, and there is more appetite for innovation. What I love most in my role at The Charity Retail Consultancy is highlighting local and broader opportunities to our lovely clients and helping make them a reality.

 

Vicki (Senior Consultant & Co-Founder of Charity Retail Learning)

Favourite thing:

I love the creativity, and that everything about it is good – it’s sustainable, provides fabulous volunteering and employment opportunities, helps maintain lively and diverse high streets, engages with the community and raises millions of pounds for lots of fantastic causes.

Best buy:

My big Burberry scarf – from Martin House Wetherby shop. Bought over the phone after they shared it on their Facebook page. I live 300 miles away and they posted it to me. Fantastic service and I’ve worn it every winter (and some summers!) for the past 5 years!

Future:

Seeing young people engage more with the sector. I can’t wait to see what their energy and passion for the planet brings.

 

Diane (Associate Consultant)

Favourite thing:

The people, the sector community and that working within is helping make the world a better place.

Best buy:

A lovely gold framed mirror.

Future:

Constantly evolving, learning and as it becomes more on trend, the better we and the planet will be.

 

Julian  (The Charity Retail Marketeer)

Favourite thing:

The positive contribution to society in so many ways

Best buy:

A table from our local Emmaus that my wife Suzy upcycled

Future:

Where Gen Z, who love preloved, will take the sector in the future

 

Amelia (Engagement Associate)

Favourite thing:

The community that each store establishes. The charm of the crowd that charity retail attracts, from the local shoppers to the volunteers, all of whom are there to support an invaluable charity, creates a sense of community and kindness which is hard to come by in any other area of retail.

Best buy:

My trusty pair of Birkenstock clogs!

Future:

I’m excited for the future of charity retail’s clear social and environmental benefits as a result of its sustainability. Charity retail is at the heart of the sustainable fight for climate justice, as a result of its promotion of re-using and recycling puts sustainability over micro-trends and over consumption.

 

So there you have it – a team full of love for the sector and optimism for the future.

And if you want to join in,  Amelia will be roving with her camera phone over the 2 days, asking you the same three questions. We’d love hear your thoughts – and then share them on our You Tube channel over the coming weeks.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
