We hope 2021 will be a more positive year for everyone and we are hopeful that as the vaccine programme gets rolled out, we will be able to resume our normal service for families as soon as it is safe to do so. Between now and then, we want to reassure you that we are here to support you if you are affected by acquired brain injury.
It is clear that things continue to change, sometimes on a day to day basis and we are aware there are many issues and concerns that families might have as further ‘restrictions’ come in…
We understand that schools and the education of children and young people is being significantly affected due to uncertainties across the board and that this may bring additional concerns, so we want to let you know that we are here to help if you need it.
We are following the Government’s guidelines at all times and continue to operate 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.

HOW WE HELP
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
Brain injury can strike at any time and affect anyone. It doesn’t discriminate but the consequences are devastating. The Child Brain Injury Trust is there to ensure no one faces childhood acquired brain injury alone.
CHILD BRAIN INJURY TRUST
Today the Child Brain Injury Trust is the leading voluntary sector organisation providing emotional and practical support, information and learning opportunities for families and professionals affected by childhood acquired brain injury across the UK.
