Charity shops

Headway charity shops sell a fantastic range of quality products at affordable prices. This helps us to raise the money we need to continue our frontline services, like our freephone nurse-led helpline, to ensure that we can be there for brain injury survivors and their families.

We have charity shops across the East Midlands, West Midlands and North West. Our shops sell clothes, accessories, household items, books, toys and much more.

Remember to Gift Aid it!

Gift Aid is one of the easiest and most effective ways to give and extra 25% to Headway. The scheme allows us to claim Gift Aid tax relief of 25p for every £1 donated, at no extra cost to you.

The additional income will make a huge difference to our frontline services, so please don’t forget to Gift Aid your cash and goods donations to our shops.

Just receive your donation box for free, fill it with goodies and have it collected from a local DPD location. 50% of the proceeds will go to us and 25% you get back as Thrift store credit to buy yourself some treats!
