Our original Mother & Baby Charity Shop is open at 15 Clarendon Road, Watford, WD17 1JR (Opposite Watford Palace Theatre). Come and visit us and shop for good quality second hand clothes, equipment, toys and books for babies and children aged 0-5 years and for mums-to-be.

Donations can be made at any time during our opening hours, if you are planning to deliver a large quantity or bulky items please call before hand to arrange a suitable time. Thank you

Opening Hours:  Tuesday-Friday 9.30am-4.30pm & Saturday 10am-4pm


Donations for the shops are always gratefully received and can be dropped off anytime during our opening hours.

Our shops are run by a wonderful team of staff and volunteers, if you have a few hours a week to spare and would like to join us to make a difference in the community please contact us for an application form.    

One of our volunteers recently said “Coming to volunteer at Alternatives has helped me so much, it has given me a new focus and I feel so much more positive about life”

Another volunteer said “Alternatives feels like a family that I belong to, I love working here”
