MINDS Shop Logo

MINDS runs 5 flagship thrift stores named MINDS Shop, where we provide pre-vocational training to our clients in retail and customer service. Each store carries a unique range of carefully selected furniture, clothes, collectibles and house wares that we think deserve a new lease of life. We strive to create an enjoyable shopping experience for our customers by ensuring that our goods are value-for-money and constantly updated.

MINDS Shop serves as a valuable avenue for our intellectually disabled clients to learn how to interact with customers. It also provides a chance for members of our society to gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by our clients. Besides the day-to-day operations of managing the store and sorting through the goods, our clients also learn how to be resourceful such as by making good out of recycled and unwanted items.

MINDS Shop Plus – a community shop for the community

In 2012, MINDS partnered NTUC Healthcare (previously known as NTUC Eldercare) to open a thrift store in the Redhill community. The main objective was to have matured workers partnering our MINDS clients to operate a thrift store. We believe that the former would be a good mentor for our clients as they were more patient. Matured workers would also be more sympathetic towards the challenges our clients face as they themselves could be discriminated for taking a longer time to adapt to new tasks.

MINDS Shop Plus also prepares our clients for full time employment in the open market. We build up their endurance and soft skills as they learn to travel independently to work and also work shift hours including weekends. The clients go through this phase in a semi-supported environment as the matured workers are also trained to guide persons with special needs.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners from NTUC Healthcare for this wonderful collaboration!

How you can help

By shopping at MINDS Shop, you not only empower our clients through meaningful work engagement, you are also doing your part to save the environment! You can also help us by donating your pre-loved goods at the above locations.

What can I donate?

There are some items that we are unable to accept such as used undergarments, used swimwear, alcohol, cigars, cigarettes, books, film/print material or artefacts of offensive nature (e.g. religious intolerance, pornography, titles banned in Singapore) and imitation goods. Besides that, we accept all items that are in usable, good condition – such as clothes, bags, books, small furniture, household items, toys and more. A basic guideline would be to see if you would buy the item and use it for yourself.

We welcome companies who would like to organise a company-wide collection from your staff. We are able to provide transportation to pick up those items based on advanced planning. Please contact the below personnel for more information:
