Meet Local Opy: Our Beloved Social Enterprise

Local Opy is SWOP’s very own op shop that donates 100% profits to charity.

SWOP and Local Opy are under the same umbrella. Each serve different purposes while working harmoniously with each other.

Local Opy was a natural progression for SWOP. We were already making donations to our local opportunity shop, and we too wanted a space that people could go to for a trendy bargain. But more so, we wanted to support the charities we believe in.

For clothes that don’t meet our SWOP criteria (we couldn’t buy them from you), there are two great options:

1. Repurpose: You can hold onto the un-sold clothes and repurpose them. For example, sell them at your local market, gift to a friend, cut into cleaning cloths, etc.

2. Donate: We can donate the un-sold clothes to our charity partners on your behalf. In Brisbane, you can choose for us to donate them to Local Opy!

  • We are currently donating profits to Asylum Seeker Resource Centre for April, May & June 2023

    Money raised by Local Opy can make an immediate impact through the ASRC to ensure people seeking safety can rebuild their lives where it’s safe. The ASRC was founded on the simple principle that all people seeking asylum in Australia should have their human rights upheld and the opportunity to be a part of the cultural fabric of our community.
