The Children’s Trust is the UK's leading charity for children with brain injury.
We work with children and young people from across the UK, both from our specialist centre in Tadworth, Surrey and in communities around the country.
That all children with brain injuries, multiple disabilities and complex health needs have the opportunity to live the best life possible.
