The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury and neurodisability. We provide rehabilitation, education and community services through skilled teams who work with children and young people, and their families.
Every year we support thousands of children from across the UK, and now is your chance to visit our national specialist centre to learn more about our services and meet the team.
We warmly welcome medical, allied health and nursing colleagues, as well as social care, education and case management professionals interested in knowing more about our services, including residential rehabilitation, specialist education and care, and support in the community. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about the step down pathway we provide to enable technology-dependent children to move from hospital to home. Our carefully planned programme includes sessions lead by staff from our multidisciplinary team, a site tour of our national specialist centre and the opportunity to network.
The event is free to attend and lunch will be provided, courtesy of Irwin Mitchell solicitors.
