The Children's Trust

The Children's Trust are the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. Every year we support thousands of children and families right across the country.

We provide rehabilitation to help children make the best recovery possible after a serious accident or illness, both at our national specialist centre in Tadworth, Surrey and in the community. We run a special school for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties and provide transitional medical care to children with complex health needs. We have an extensive research programme and provide online support for families all over the UK.

Every year over 40,000 children are left a brain injury after an accident or illness. This is known as acquired brain injury.

Many children make a good recovery, but thousands have to live with ongoing, long-term difficulties. Some children are left with severe physical or learning difficulties. Some children experience more subtle difficulties which nevertheless have a big impact on their lives.

Our rehabilitation, community and online services are there to support all children with acquired brain injury and their families.

Thousands more children are born with brain injuries or develop severe disabilities as a result of a degenerative condition. Our medical services and special school give children with the most complex disabilities and health needs the chance to live their lives to the full.
