Brain Injury Rehabilitation Services

In 1985 we started the UK's first paediatric brain injury rehabilitation service and now work with children and families from across the country. We now run the UK's largest service of its kind at our national specialist centre in Tadworth, Surrey. Our rehabilitation service is funded in a number of ways, including funding from NHS England via National Specialist Commissioning; private individuals who fund their child’s placement; and insurance companies or embassies representing a child.

We also rely on the generous donations of our supporters to supplement the funding received.
