The appearance of the products on our website is an invitation to you to make an offer to purchase them by placing an order with us. We have the right to refuse any orders and no contract will subsist between you and us unless and until we accept your order.
Acceptance of an order will be deemed complete and effectively communicated to you when we send you an email accepting your order (whether or not you receive that email). An automated email acknowledging receipt of your order will not be treated as acceptance of your order.
The products on our website are subject to availability. If we accept your order for any products (“Products”) but do not supply those Products to you for any reason, we will not charge you for those Products and will refund any money already paid for them. However we will not be responsible for compensating you for any other losses which you may suffer if we do not supply the Products.
Price of the products and payment
The prices for the Products and any delivery charges are as set out on our Website and are stated in UK Pounds Sterling. These prices include applicable sales tax and duty.
Whilst we try to ensure that these prices are accurate, mistakes may sometimes occur. If we discover a mistake in the price of the Products we will contact you as soon as possible and give you the option to either re-order the Products at the correct price or to cancel your order. If we cannot contact you we will treat the order as having been cancelled. If the order is cancelled we will not charge you for those Products and will refund any money already paid for them.
Any promotional codes/discounts must be entered before the order has been placed. We are unfortunately unable to apply discounts after the order has received.3.2.4 The cost of any order must be paid by you before delivery by a credit or debit card acceptable to us.
Delivery of the Products
Where our postage service allows, we will deliver Products to addresses outside the United Kingdom and Channel Islands, however we have the right to refuse any orders for delivery of Products to delivery addresses outside these territories.
We will deliver the Products to you at the delivery address given in your order in accordance with the delivery options set out on the Website and selected in your order. Timescales for delivery will be calculated from the date that payment is made by credit or debit card.
However, because delay is sometimes outside of our control, time of delivery will not be of the essence. As such we will not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused by any delay in delivering the Products to you.
We will use our reasonable endeavours to let you know as soon as reasonably possible if we are unable to deliver all or any part of your order for any reason.
We reserve the right to deliver your order in installments, and if the order includes matching sets we reserve the right to wait until the whole of that set is ready for delivery. If we chose to do so we will not charge you any additional delivery costs for that order.
If you have not received the Products within 28 days you may contact us by email quoting your order reference number and cancel that order. If the order is cancelled we will refund any money already paid for that order.
Your right to return the Products
You may return Products to us and we will give you a full refund of the purchase price actually paid provided that:
(a) in the case of Products sold to you as part of a sale, special offer or sales promotion, you return them (and any associated products included as part of that , special offer or sales promotion, such as free gifts) to us in their original condition and packaging, unworn, unused and unwashed within 14 days after the date that you received them; and
(b) in the case of any other Products sold to you, you return them in their original condition and packaging, unworn, unused and unwashed within 28 days after the date that you received them.
You may return any defective Products to us and we will, at your option, either replace the defective Products or give you a full refund of the purchase price actually paid and the delivery charge as recorded on your invoice in respect of such defective Products (subject to you providing us with a receipt of these charges) provided that:
(a) in the case of Products sold you as part of a sale, special offer or sales promotion, you return them (and any associated products included as part of that, special offer or sales promotion, such as free gifts) within 14 days after the date that you received them; and
(b) in the case of any other Products sold to you, you return them to us within 28 days after the date that you received them.
Products that you return to us must be sent to our address set out above, and may not be sent or returned to any stores or other premises operated by us. Products that you return to us should be accompanied by a document clearly stating your full name, address and account details.
In line with distance selling laws; should you wish to send something back to us, please notify us in writing (via post or email) within 14 days of receiving the product/s. Unfortunately we cannot accept requests via telephone. You will be required to return the goods within 14 days of cancellation. Headway will reimburse all payments (with the exception of non-standard delivery costs) within 14 days of receiving the goods. If notification is received after 14 days, we will refund the delivery charge, but only if the goods are deemed damaged or faulty.
If you have kept some of the items from your order and returned others, we’re afraid we cannot refund your postage costs.
Please note that refunds will be processed only via original method of payment.
If you have used a gift voucher/card and return part of your order, we will refund the value of the item to the gift card first and refund any outstanding balance to your credit/debit card.

Retail Gift Aid and Agency Agreement

By signing our Gift Aid Declaration form when donating your unwanted items to Headway, you are agreeing that:
- You are appointing Headway Retail (Trading Company) to act as your agent on your behalf in attempting to sell or dispose of the goods that you bring into the shop. Where goods are sold, a commission of 1% of the sale price + VAT will be charged for this service and deducted from the proceeds of sale.
- You own all of the goods that you bring into the shop for sale, you obtained them in a legal manner and you are not acting as a business. You agree that neither Headway Retail nor Headway – the brain injury association (and henceforth known as The Charity) will be responsible for any loss or damage to any goods brought into the shop for sale.
- You confirm that Headway Retail is instructed as your agent, to donate the net proceeds from the sale of your goods to The Charity and that it is not necessary to write to you to confirm these donations, provided that the total value of these net proceeds has not so far in that tax year exceeded £1,000 (or such increased limit as specified by the HMRC).
- Once a sale is made that brings the total value of the net proceeds of the sale of our goods to more than £1,000 (or such increased limit as specified by the HMRC), we must first write to you to confirm your consent to those funds over and above the initial £1,000 being donated. You may notify us in writing at any time at the address stated below if you no longer want this arrangement to stand.
- You are a UK tax payer and would like Headway Retail to make donations to The Charity on your behalf and you would like all donations that you make, or have made, in the last four years, to be treated as a Gift Aid donations (until you notify us otherwise or this agreement is terminated). You confirm that you have paid at least 25p income tax or capital gains tax in the UK (other tax such as VAT and council tax do not qualify) during the applicable tax year for each £1 that you have donated in that tax year to all charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs). In order to cover the initial £1,000 that you have
agreed to donate without further notification from us, you must have paid at least £250 income tax or capital gains tax in the UK during the tax year before you sign up to this agreement.
- If we are unable to sell any of your goods from the date on which you brought them into the shop, Headway Retail is instructed as your agent, to transfer ownership of those goods to The Charity.
- You will let us know of any change in your tax status and/or address and contact details.
- You waive the right to claim interest that may have accrued on any cash you decide to reclaim from the sale of the items.
- Either you or we may terminate this agreement at any time by written notice.
- We may vary the terms of this agreement at any time by written notice to you.
Don’t forget to let us know if any of your details or circumstances change.
