Help us to Help others

The Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd (SATCoL) is the trading arm of The Salvation Army in the UK and Republic of Ireland. We were established in 1991 to help fund The Salvation Army’s vital work with vulnerable people in the UK, and today we raise money and encourage reuse and recycling through a network of over 200 charity shops, 2 Superstores, 3 Donation Centres and a clothing collection division, all of which is constantly growing and developing.

With the support of the British public, we have been able to donate millions of pounds to The Salvation Army – over £35 million has been donated in the last five years alone, helping to fund the extensive and very important work that The Salvation Army carries out– including homelessness and addiction services, care for older people, help at emergency incidents, support for adult victims of human trafficking in England and Wales and a Family Tracing Service.
