Charity Shops

Our seven charity shops offer a range of preloved items - a wonderful collection of donated goods, ranging from clothes, to household goods to furniture and more.

We are always looking for good quality used or surplus items to stock in our shops. Electrical products are accepted for PAT testing.

If you have some free time, why not come in and volunteer for a few hours with us in one of our shops? You'll be in good company - our shops volunteers are an award winning team and were recognised in the 2016 Dorset Volunteering Awards! Volunteering will help you learn new skills, meet new people and you will be helping us to raise valuable funds that go directly towards Prama's work, supporting Dorset's older people, people with dementia and carers.  Call 01202 207300 or pop into one of our shops in West Moors, Kinson, Tuckton, Parkstone, Ashley Cross, Ringwood or on Poole High Street for a chat.

“Prama are kind, friendly and above all very efficient”

Prama continue to flourish

The Dorset charity is working hard to provide support to both private and local authority clients.  Paula Jones, Operations Director, says "We are thankful to still be growing and in a strong position to support all our clients through our domiciliary care service and the ever-increasing number of community activities we provide around Poole, Bournemouth, East Dorset and beyond.  We have come a long way in the last 35 years, since Dr Chris Moran started the charity with volunteers in 1987 and have built an organisation that demonstrates resilience and sustainability in response to the increasing demands on the sector.  We still believe, as Dr Moran did, that a Christian based charity can make such a difference to people's lives." 

Paula continues, "The challenges faced across the sector affect us, as they do many care organisations.  Whilst we have a reputation for being a great employer we still struggle to recruit care workers, who are in short supply.  We simply don't have enough staff to take on the number of clients who want our services."  

The increasing reference in the wider media to the social care crisis and the BBC Panorama programme (aired on 20th March), clearly indicate the extent of the problem being faced by the social care sector.  This isn't a problem that will be easily resolved - the government's promise in the recent budget to provide an additional £2 billion to councils in England over the next 3 years to spend on adult social care services may only dent the surface. 

It's encouraging to know that at Prama, the care they deliver to clients who are funded by the local authority is just the same high quality as they deliver to private clients - as Paula emphasised: "We provide an identical service to our local authority clients.  We don't discriminate in any way and firmly believe that no-one should be disadvantaged because they are not eligible for funding."
