I would like to open a charity shop of my
Own what do I do to get it going please
Advice me thanking you
Thank you for your question.
I would advise you to talk directly to the Irish Charity Shops Association (ICSA), as they would be best placed to advise you on the way forward.
Their website has a lot of useful practical information too, such as How Charity Shops Work, Setting Up a Charity Shop and a Code of Charity Retailing.
Questions you will obviously need to ask yourself and consider include: what charity are you acting / collecting for?; do you have their permission and are formally associated with them?, is that charity registered with the Charities Regulator?; how do you propose to fund the initial set up costs and premises rental etc.?
Again, I would definitely speak to the ICSA directly after first ensuring that you have consumed all relevant information on their website.
Their contact form is here: https://www.icsa.ie/contact/
I hope that helps.
