The Child Brain Injury Trust is the leading voluntary sector organisation providing non-medical services to families and professionals affected by childhood acquired brain injury across the UK. We operate in England, Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland.


Every 30 minutes in the UK, a child will acquire a brain injury. This could be the result of:

  • An accident
  • An illness such as meningitis or encephalitis
  • A poisoning
  • A stroke
  • A brain tumour

A brain injury has a devastating and life-long impact on the child and their whole family. Bones can mend and scars can heal but a brain injury stays with you for life and impacts on everything you think, feel and do.

Established in 1991, the Child Brain Injury Trust supports children, young people, their families and professionals to come to terms with what has happened and how to deal with the uncertainty that the future holds. An acquired brain injury will affect each person differently. However, there are some common issues that children and young people may face:

  • Memory loss
  • Mobility problems
  • Fatigue
  • Concentration
  • Personality changes
  • Behavioural issues
  • Changes in the way that they perceive themselves and others
