Resource Centre at Bourne End, Bucks
Headway South Bucks runs a Resource Centre for brain injury survivors who are welcome at various stages of their recovery. We are open on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for 51 weeks per year, and provide a welcoming and friendly meeting place for our "Clients". Our aim is to give all Clients the opportunity to improve their social, cognitive, coordination and living skills. This is done through activities and external therapists, with activities such as digital art, Zumba keep fit as well as regular outings. Whilst attending the Resource Centre, Carers can be assured that their loved ones are happy and well cared-for whilst they have the opportunity for some well-earned respite.
In summary, our Resource Centre provides:
- A friendly and welcoming meeting place for clients;
- An opportunity for clients to improve their social and cognitive skills;
- Much needed support and respite to relatives and carers;
- Activities and social outings geared towards achieving personal and skills development for those with brain injury – even years after the injury occurred.
Headway South Bucks strongly believes that with the right help and support, progress and improvements can be made by people with acquired brain injury years after the injury has occurred and our Resource Centre activities are geared towards achieving this goal.
