Due to growing commercial pressures, all Oxfam Shops are now closed. While difficult, this ensures our resources reach the people who need it most. You can continue supporting us online with Oxfam Unwrapped and Oxfam fair coffee.
It’s the power to create a more just and sustainable world, simply by choosing to shop ethically.
That’s why at Oxfam, we help you make powerful purchasing decisions that support people in developing countries who are trying to make a living and lift themselves out of poverty.
Every dollar spent makes a statement. So let’s work together to make every purchase a step towards a better tomorrow.
Oxfam Unwrapped charity gifts help transform the lives of people living with poverty by providing food, clean water and other life-changing essentials. You can choose a gift card to suit any personality or occasion from christmas gifts, birthday gifts, wedding gifts and even corporate gifts!
Did you know that a simple cup of coffee can help empower people around the world? Oxfam fair Coffee and drinking chocolate is delicious, organic and supports communities and farmers by always providing a fair and stable price for their ingredients.
When you choose Oxfam’s ethical coffee, all money raised goes back into programs that help tackle poverty around the world.
Big brands are keeping the women who make our clothes in poverty.
In countries like Bangladesh, workers spend up to 12 hours a day making cheap clothes for international brands, without enough income to cover basic necessities like food, water and shelter. Demand that brands pay women a living wage and join the campaign to stop What She Makes from keeping her in poverty.
Fast fashion, and the constant inflow of low-cost, low-quality garments means that Australians are buying more disposable clothing than ever. The effect of the $23.5 billion ready-made fashion industry has become devastating both for the environment and mostly female workers who are under a huge amount of pressure to deliver on orders.
Despite long hours away from family, and appalling working conditions, the women who make our clothes do not make enough to live on, keeping them and their families in a cycle of poverty.
By taking the pledge to stand with her and demanding that big brands pay a living wage, you can show your support for #whatshemakes, and see how your favourite brands measure up in the company tracker.
Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to eliminate poverty by tackling inequality. Through humanitarian relief, community advocacy and sustainable development, we help people and communities have a say in the critical decisions that affect them, leading to fairer systems which promote a future free from poverty.

If you’ve been trying to find the Oxfam retail shop, either in shopping centres or online, you might have noticed something missing.
Due to the growing commercial pressure of retail costs, the difficult decision was made to close our stores so that money and resources can better reach the people who need it most.
Just because things have changed doesn’t mean that you can’t shop ethically with us. Continue making a difference by purchasing an Oxfam Unwrapped charity gift card for your loved ones and make the switch to Oxfam fair Coffee and drinking chocolate.
