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.

Spring is here at last and we kick started the season with lots of activities in the centre.
An early visit by Anne accompanied by Harry, the border collie lifted spirits and clients got creative with their camera skills assisted by the marvellous Marlow Camera Club.
Clients had fun in the gym conditioning session where their football prowess was on show!
Our regular visit to Sportsable in Maidenhead was a great success with one to one guidance on the art of archery, a fair few bullseyes were hit.
Later this month, our ever popular seated Zumba and Music Therapy classes got everyone nicely warmed up on these chilly March days.
