The Child Brain Injury Trust
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.
A brain injury has a devastating and life-long impact on the child and their whole family. Bones can mend and scars can heal but a brain injury stays with you for life and impacts on everything you think, feel and do.
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. You are here because you are either affected by childhood acquired brain injury directly or because you know someone who is. You are not alone – welcome to our website.
We offer support to anyone in the UK affected by childhood acquired brain injury. Whether this means a face to face visit, a chat with our friendly Helpline or simply access to our easy to understand Factsheets on acquired brain injury, the support for your family is tailored to suit your circumstances.
