Charity Shops

All of our Charity shops are helping us raise vital funds towards our brain injury services across the Birmingham and Solihull areas. We depend on regular donations and volunteer help to continue this success at all of our charity shops and so please do get in touch if you can help in any way.


Donations can be dropped off at our shops or our local brain injury centres.  We can also collect larger items and big donations.


The first shop was opened in Great Barr in January 2006 by the charity’s patron at the time Prof Carl Chinn. Located in the heart of the local community, this shop has thrived since the day it opened, offering a great variety of clothing, accessories, books, toys, games & more besides, thanks to the generosity of those living nearby.  The shop is managed by two paid part-time staff and a team of wonderful volunteers, without whose help we could not survive.

We also opened a third shop in April 2019, next door                                                                                to the original shop in Thornbridge Avenue, Great Barr.                                                                        This new shop, called Headway Homes, is a new                                                                              format store selling furniture and other household                                                                               items. It is off to an excellent start, boosted by our                                                                            collection/delivery service.

Our second shop was opened in Rubery in July 2016                                                                             and our client Manny Galsinh was given the honour of                                                                        cutting the ribbon at the opening ceremony. Again the                                                                          shop is managed by two paid part-time staff plus some                                                                     volunteers who make such a difference.


Call by at your nearest shop to drop off                                            your donations and enquire about  volunteering                    opportunities, or call our Personnel team on 0121 457 7541.
