When a child acquires a brain injury it can have a devastating affect on all the family.  Every year thousands of families are left without any support and often feel alone with nowhere to turn to.

We are here to support families and professionals working with children and young people who find themselves in need of information about what’s happened and how to cope.  We are here to listen and to help  with practical and emotional  issues which may arise over time.

We work in Hospitals, Schools and in the community and are able to offer face to face meetings, phone and email support.


The Child Brain Injury Trust has two main campaigns throughout the year. The first one is Action for Brain Injury Week, which takes place each May.

We also run our Autumn Safety Campaign, ‘GloWeek’ (formerly “Be Seen, Not Hurt”) in the week surrounding the clocks changing.

We are also running an ‘Early Years’ campaign – more information to follow
