Help a child like Bobby to defy expectations 

When Bobby was hit by a car, his parents were told to expect the worst.

Every 15 minutes in the UK, a child like Bobby is left with a brain injury.

Make some noise for Bobby

Bobby in music therapyWhen Bobby was five years old, he was hit by a car. His injuries were so severe, that this chatty little boy who loved to run around and play could no longer speak or walk. 

Thanks to the support of people like you, our expert teams could work with Bobby to help him slowly start to recover. Music therapy helped Bobby start to relearn speech patterns and teach him how to move in response to the sounds.

Today, Bobby can say a few words. He can play the drums. He was even able to stand up on his own to ring the “going home bell”.  

It’s thanks to our supporters that we can care for children like Bobby when they need us most – helping them defy expectations. Will you set up a regular gift today and help another child with brain injury start living again?

How you can help children with brain injury 

Mollie in hydrotherapyEvery year, 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury. 

That’s one child every 15 minutes.

They can lose the ability to speak, stand, walk or feed themselves. 

Parents are thrown into a world of hospitals and surgeries – transformed overnight from mum or dad to ‘carer’ and ‘nurse’. 

All of them need your help to defy expectations and start living again.
