Volunteers: We need you!

Wed 01 Jun 2022

Our charity shops are a treasure trove of quality clothing, toys, ornaments, music, books and more. But we urgently need volunteers to help continue serving our loyal customers to the highest Headway standards!

As a Volunteer Shop Assistant you get the chance to try a variety of tasks from serving customers to sorting stock and dressing windows. You choose what hours and what days you want to work and you'll get plenty of training and support as well as working in a team of great people.

We have shops across the Midlands and North West of England, you can find your nearest shop here and click the button below to apply now...

Why we need you

If we were to replace our volunteers with paid staff it would cost us thousands of pounds - taking away all our profits made in the shops from the charity. The profits we do make, with your help, go to supporting people affected by the trauma of brain injury.

What will you be doing?

What skills do you need?

How much time will you need to commit?

It's up to you! We are flexible to work around your other commitments. Any time you can give will help us.

Ideally we would like you to help on a set shift(s) each week - this way our Manager can plan the team so that we haven't got 5 volunteers on one day and none the next!

Many of our volunteers help out for one or two 3-hour shifts a week (either morning or afternoon to suit you).

What support will you be given?
