The Child Brain Injury Trust knows how difficult the current situation is for families affected by acquired brain injury.  We understand that the situation is changing on a day to day basis and as we ease out of the national ‘lock down’, there are many issues and concerns that families might have.

We understand that with schools reopening that this may bring additional concerns and we want to let you know that we are here to help.

We are following the Government’s guidelines at all times and are operating a virtual service which means we can’t see people face to face, but we are very much open as usual.

We want to thank everyone who continues to support us as it is making a huge difference, and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

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


Please take a look at our events, here you will find upcoming Family events, Information & Learning opportunities and even book on to your next fundraising challenge!
