The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury and neurodisability. We deliver rehabilitation, education and community services through skilled teams who work with children and young people aged 0-18, and their families.

In addition, we also provide long-term support to the child and their family at key transition stages such as starting school, moving to secondary school or college, starting a new job or leaving home to live independently for the first time. In addition, The Children’s Trust Brain Injury Hub […]
