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.

Christmas Lunch 191219Christmas Lunch Party Thursday 19th December 2019 - click here for Photos

On Thursday 19th December we held our annual Christmas Lunch party. As usual we had over 60 people for a lovely traditional Turkey Christmas lunch with all the trimmings. It was lovely to welcome some of our supporters and friends to join us.
As you can see from the photo gallery the hall was decorated beautifully, many thanks to all our wonderful volunteers who worked hard to get everything ready.
Before lunch we enjoyed coffee and Carol singing. We even had our own choir who did a sterling job in leading us in the singing. Our choir members consisted of trustees, clients and carers, they were brilliant!
After our carol singing we moved through to the large hall at the Community centre for our 2 course lunch. The photos show everyone tucking into a delicious lunch followed by Christmas pudding and coffee.
During the afternoon we were entertained by our favourite singer Nik who was accompanied for a few duets by some willing participants. Such talent we have amongst our group!
We held a raffle and as usual we had lots of lovely prizes. Our beautiful hampers are always a popular prize. Thank you to our many donors.
We are already looking forward to next year which is booked for Thursday 17th December 2020.

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
