In loving memory of Bill Caldwell
HSB are deeply saddened by the loss of a familiar and friendly face at the Resource Centre, and a valued Trustee. We are so grateful for the time that he has dedicated to us over the years; a character that will be greatly missed by all. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this very difficult time.
Bill's life was commemorated at a service on 15th April.
Bill’s family have asked that a donation is made to HSB in lieu of flowers. We are very touched by this gesture. If you should wish to do this, the link is:
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.
Woking Theatre - Calendar Girls 27th March 2019 - click here for photos
This week nearly 50 of us went to see Calendar Girls - The Musical at Woking Theatre. Setting off from Bourne End, in a coach convoy, we navigated the M25 and M3 and made our way to Surrey. We stopped at the Talbot Inn Restaurant for a delicious lunch before settling down for the matinee performance. Calendar Girls - the Musical - is based on a true story of a group of Yorkshire women who agree to create and sell a nude charity calendar. As members of the WI, they pose behind various props - iced buns, balls of wool, a wheelbarrow, a piano - All done in the best possible taste, though 'We're Going to Need Considerably Bigger Buns!’ ! It was great fun and poignant at the same time. Another well organised and enjoyable outing. Thank you Team HSB.
