How we are funded

Wise Buys - our community shop - is a hub of community life generating vital income for Community Wise. Local people donate quality second-hand goods.

The shop is staffed by our manageress, Rita Lanaway and a team of hardworking and committed volunteers. 

Some donated items are sent for auction, but most are sold within the shop. 

We are committed to providing an opportunity for people to buy necessary household goods and clothing at affordable prices. Our stock rotates quickly. There's always something new to see at Wise Buys at Community Wise. 

Funds for the running of the cenre are also raised by letting rooms in the the building to various local groups and individuals, and by occasional grants. 

For a full set of the accounts, please contact the Community Wise office.
