Our Gift Shop exists to provide training opportunities to help vulnerable adults and young people gain work experience and the skills needed for them to get into paid employment. We sell Fair-trade and ethically sourced gifts from around the world, because we wish for our products to reflect our belief that every person deserves opportunities for meaningful work.

The shop has a team of twenty volunteers, from every walk of life. Each one of them has a unique training plan to ensure they can grow in the key retail, work and social skills that will help them towards paid employment elsewhere. Read a story here about one of our amazing volunteers, who has been through our training programme.

Our customers say:

“Lovely shop, so well organised. Very friendly and helpful staff. My favourite part is how well they empower people in the community of Gloucester. Every penny is very well spent.

“If you want a place to find unique, well crafted, and unusual gifts from around the world - and at the same time to know that you're really making a difference by directly helping the people who made them - this is the place! Lots of treasures - not just the items, but the people behind them.

Our Volunteers say: 

“Everything that I achieved and gained through volunteering at Treasure Seekers has become one of my biggest achievements in life and at the same time the most rewarding experience one could ask for.
