Philanthropy

Making a large gift to The Children’s Trust will help us to give children with brain injury and neurodisability the opportunity to live the best life possible.




The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. Every year 40,000 children experience a brain injury, either through an illness or accident. At our National Specialist Centre in Tadworth, Surrey, we provide intensive residential neurorehabilitation for some of these children who often come to us after spending months in hospital. 

Your support could fund:

  • Specialist play activities and music therapy which are fun and motivating whilst rebuilding essential skills and self-confidence
  • Our nursery for the growing number of children aged 3-5 who have a wide range of special educational and care needs
  • Our Brain Injury Community Service which provides vital support across the country for children in their own communities
  • Providing high quality information and advice through our online resource, the Brain Injury Hub
     

If you are considering making a major gift, please contact our Philanthropy Team. We will discuss your interests with you and share our most urgent funding needs.
