Placements at The Children's Trust are funded in a number of ways.

Where applicable, neurorehabilitation placements are funded in England by NHS England, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), and by the respective health authorities for children from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We are also able to accept private placements and work collaboratively with insurers, lawyers, case managers, and international embassies, offering flexibility that meets the needs of the child, their family and the funder.

Step-down, residential short breaks and specialist health placements for children with complex health needs or who are technology dependent are often funded by CCGs and/or social care.

Education and residential care placements for children are funded in a variety of ways, including via the child’s local authority, their local clinical commissioning group, via social care, or a combination where commissioners agree to jointly fund.

Whichever authority pays for the cost of the treatment, you can rest assured that this will all happen behind the scenes between the funder and The Children’s Trust, meaning that you can concentrate on being a parent or member of a clinical team and focus on the child and their needs.
