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.

Unfortunately we had to postpone our usual Christmas Lunch so instead we held two smaller Christmas celebrations. We played Christmas Music bingo, pass the parcel and had a Christmas Quiz. We pulled crackers whilst enjoying our fish and chip lunch together. As you can see from the photos here, we wore our Christmas jumpers and had our own photo booth session with some Christmas accessories!
November 2021 - Two wonderful donations!
We were delighted to receive a donation from the Coop Local Community Fund. We were one of the local groups in Bourne End to benefit from the fund. We received a wonderful donation of £2316.01. Here is Sharon our Services Manager receiving a cheque from the Manager of the Bourne End Coop.
We received another donation from the Kings Head Cricket Teams when our Trustee Steve Gasper attended their presentation dinner to receive a donation of £1000.
We are extremely grateful for both of these donations.
