The Brotherhood runs a diverse range of businesses, or social enterprises, which allow us to raise funds for our programs, provide job seekers with training and a job, offer affordable goods and services to people on low incomes, and establish community connections.
Our businesses also show our commitment to environmental and social responsibility through encouraging recycling, reducing energy consumption and minimising waste. This includes reconditioning fridges, recycling books and re-using vintage clothing.
Some of our businesses are mainly established to raise capital to support our activities, while other social enterprises are principally set up to offer job seekers employment and training.
Brotherhood businesses include Brotherhood stores, hunter gatherer, Brotherhood Books and Brotherhood Fridges.
Families and bargain hunters can visit one of our 20 stores across Greater Melbourne and purchase low-cost goods while contributing much-needed funds for the Brotherhood's charity work.
Love vintage? You'll adore our hunter gatherer stores! Each hunter gatherer piece is handpicked from the hundreds of thousands of wardrobe items donated each year to the Brotherhood. The two stores, located in Fitzroy and Melbourne City, also sell boutique jewellery by local artisans.
Visit our online bookstore and browse the range of more than 100,000 second-hand books today.
Donate old or second-hand fridges via our FREE collection service across Greater Melbourne. We'll repair the fridge and sell it through our community stores at an affordable price.
