Head down to Headway!

Thu 01 Oct 2020

Our charity shops are re-opening, and we look forward to welcoming you back!

Our primary concern is the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and customers and we have therefore introduced a few new measures to our shops.

What’s new?

Donations are also being stored for 48 hours before going on sale and where possible, contactless payments are encouraged.

We may adjust opening times to allow for deep cleaning of the shops, so it is advisable to phone ahead before making a special journey.

Is my local Headway charity shop open?

We have been reopening our shops on a phased basis and will continue to update our website with individual shop opening information.

Find your local shop here for contact details. 

We need you!

As the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, we were forced to close the doors to all 30 of our charity shops, the profits of which were crucial in helping to deliver our frontline services.

We are now expecting a £2 million drop in income this year, but you can help! Simply donating unwanted items or volunteering your time will make a huge difference to the support we can continue to offer to those affected by brain injury.

Carol Tennet, Head of Retail at Headway, said: “We urgently need good quality donations of clothing, bric-a-brac, media, children’s toys, furniture and small electrical items and would be extremely grateful for any donations.

“Likewise, we’re always looking to welcome new volunteers to the team and we have lots of opportunities to get involved - whether it’s greeting customers with a friendly smile, sorting through stock or manning the till.”
