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.

Headway South Bucks Christmas Lunch at Bourne End.

Penguin Day 171019Penguin Day at the Resource Centre - Thursday 17th October 2019 - click here for photos

On Thursday 17th October Headway South Bucks held a Penguin Day. Everyone across the three days were invited to come along for a day of Penguin-themed activities.
The day started with tea/coffee and penguin biscuits kindly donated by the Coop, Bourne End. There was a choice of activities to take part in such as penguin wordsearches, wooden penguins to paint, penguins made from facecloths, penguin pairs game, penguin cupcakes and edible penguins made from olives, carrots and cream cheese!
After a morning of activities everyone enjoyed a fish and chip lunch followed by a slice of cake. Local businesses in Bourne End were very supportive and donated items for our raffle which was held after lunch.
Then the best part of the day was when “Charlie” and “Pringle” a couple of Humboldt penguins from Amazing Animals arrived to entertain us. They walked into the hall completely unphased by the 50+ people that greeted them! They waddled around the hall while everyone oo’d and agh’d and cameras snapped cute pictures!
Their keepers told us lots of interesting facts about the penguins and we were able to ask lots of questions. We were able to stroke them……they felt so soft! Some people were lucky enough to enjoy a quick cuddle with a penguin which as you can see from the photos they thoroughly enjoyed.
These events are really appreciated by our service users but could not take place without the continued support of our dedicated volunteers.
Who knows what our themed day will be next year??

We were delighted to receive Press Coverage from the Maidenhead Advertiser - see their report here

 

Rivertime_Boat_Trip_220819Rivertime Boat Trip - Henley Thursday 22nd August 2019 - click here for Photos

On 22nd August our Thursday clients enjoyed a trip to Henley to go on a boat trip. Marlow Rotary kindly donated the funds to cover the boat for us. We travelled by minibus to the River and Rowing Museum where we were to board the boat belonging to Rivertime Boat Trust.
When we arrived at Henley half of the group boarded the boat for their hours trip while the rest of us waved them off. We then enjoyed coffee and cake in the Museum cafe.
An hour later the groups swopped over, each group enjoying a packed lunch whilst on the boat trip.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and as you can see from the photos we had lovely weather too!
Our thanks again to Marlow Rotary for this great experience and also to Lucy our skipper and the Rivertime Boat trust for providing such a great facility.
