Every 30 minutes, a child or young person will acquire a brain injury. This could be the result of an accident, an illness such as meningitis or encephalitis, a poisoning, a stroke or a brain tumour.

The Child Brain Injury Trust is the charity that supports children, young people, their families and professionals and helps them come to terms with what has happened and how to deal with the uncertainty that the future may hold.


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!
