About us

The Children's Trust is the UK's leading charity for children with brain injury. We deliver rehabilitation, education and community services through skilled teams who work with children and young people, and their families. Our ambition is for all children with brain injury and neurodisability to have the opportunity to live the best life possible.
Our key objectives For children with brain injury and their families, we aim to:
  • be the best at what we do
  • respond to the needs of children and young people
  • ensure our services are there for children for the long term
  • scale up.
Every year over 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness (figure drawn from NHS England). 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 difficulties or learning difficulties. Some children experience more subtle, 'hidden' 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.
