Welcome to Headway South Bucks
Headway South Bucks cares for people who have acquired a brain injury whether through sporting or work accidents, road traffic accidents, assault, illness or disease. It is affiliated to the national Headway organisation at www.headway.org.uk/
Support is given in two main ways:
- Through our Resource Centre in Bourne End, where activities take place to improve cognitive, memory, coordination and living skills together with confidence building in social skills. These activities are designed to help people to rebuild their lives following brain injury. The centre has approximately 18 places available each day and runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Some clients choose to enjoy just one day per week whilst others enjoy attending on two or three days.
- We also provide support to Carers through our unique Carers' Support Programme, which was recently introduced and which offers regular themed meetings, outings and individually-tailored respite.
Headway South Bucks also works in partnership with other organisations in Buckinghamshire and beyond - including CHIS, the Community Head Injury Service based in Aylesbury. Please see our Sources of Help page for further information on these organisations.
Currently over 25 families are supported across South Bucks and the surrounding areas. If we cannot provide advice and support ourselves we will put you in contact with people who can.
Please feel free to use our website as a resource and we hope the information here helps you. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know through the Contact Us link you will find at the foot of every page.

We want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to the Hutchins family, friends, and talented musicians for their hospitality at Willow Wood Festival in Cookham, this Saturday. Everyone had a wonderful time, and thoroughly enjoyed coming together for an afternoon of family fun in support of the work that we do at Headway South Bucks. This charity is very close to the hearts of our hosts, and their friendship going forward is an invaluable asset to us.
