The Child Brain Injury Trust was established by a group of health professionals in 1991 to research and provide information regarding the effects of ‘traumatic’ injury on a child’s developing brain. Parents of children with acquired brain injury were keen to become actively involved with the charity and over time the emphasis on the work changed.
Today the Child Brain Injury Trust is the leading voluntary sector organisation (registered charity and company limited by guarantee) providing non-medical services to families affected by childhood acquired brain injury across the UK. We operate in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and have a dedicated team of professional staff and volunteers who give their expertise, commitment and enthusiasm every day. Families continue to be involved in the development of the charity and we continue to be amazed and enlightened by their energy and uniqueness.
The charity currently has 3 offices across the UK. Our registered office is located in Oxfordshire with regional offices in Belfast and Edinburgh.
