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.
Diary Dates - for Clients and Carers:
Theatre Outing May 9th 2018
On Wednesday 9th May HSB enjoyed a lovely sunny day out for lunch followed by a show at the Wycombe Swan Theatre. The coaches collected us from Bourne End for our short trip to The Spade Oak for a lovely lunch. As you can see from these photos we were presented with a choice of very tasty meals. After a relaxed 2 course meal we boarded the coaches again for the short transfer to Wycombe Swan to see the matinee performance of An Officer and a Gentleman. It was a very good production which we thoroughly enjoyed. The singing from some talented performers was very entertaining. It was a lovely day out enjoyed by over 50 clients and volunteers.
