Meet Local Opy: Our Beloved Social Enterprise

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

Shop 5, 162 Boundary St, West End 4101


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 The Healing Foundation for January, February & March 2023

    The Healing Foundation is a national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation that provides a platform to amplify the voices and lived experience of Stolen Generations survivors and their families.

    The Healing Foundation work with communities to create a place of safety, providing an environment for Stolen Generations survivors and their families to speak for themselves, tell their own stories, and be in charge of their own healing. They promote trauma-aware, healing-informed practice to help government, policymakers, and workforces understand their role in intergenerational healing.

    By addressing unresolved trauma in First Nations communities – trauma that was caused by colonisation and actions like the forced removal of children – The Healing Foundation are walking alongside communities on the path to healing.
