Child Brain Injury Trust
Who we are
There’s no text book that can prepare you for what happens when your child’s brain is suddenly injured. Bones can mend and scars can heal, but a brain injury stays with you for life. It impacts on everything you think, feel and do.
Every year, thousands of parents contact the Child Brain Injury Trust to help them prepare for the challenges that lie ahead when a child or young person acquires a brain injury. This could be the result of an accident, an illness like meninigitis or encephalitis, a poisoning, stroke or a tumour. We provide vital information and support when its needed most.
The charity also works closely with children and young people with an acquired brain injury to help them understand what has happened to them.
