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.

Christmas Campaign


For some families, Christmas will never be the same again. The devastation brain injury causes impacts heavily on the child themselves and has a knock-on effect on the whole family. One charity is there for families– the Child Brain Injury Trust, helping families deal with the impact of brain injury when there is nowhere else to turn to. If you’re able to, please make a donation this Christmas to help us reduce the isolation families feel.
