Child Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service, delivered in partnership with the Child Brain Injury Trust

The Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) was established by a group of health professionals in 1991 to research and provide information regarding the effects of ‘traumatic’ injury on a child’s developing brain. CBIT are the leading charity (registered charity and company limited by guarantee) providing practical and emotional support services to families affected by childhood acquired brain injury across the UK.

They operate in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and have a dedicated team of professional staff who provide support, information, learning opportunities and sign posting services to help meet the needs of these children and their families.

The charity’s Model of Integrated Support ensures that families are assessed early at the hospital stage and then followed up on a regular basis. The team works in all paediatric trauma centres across the UK and also in the community and at school.

Sadly, there are at least 40,000 new cases of this kind every year and reaching these children early in their journey after sustaining an acquired brain injury is critical to enabling them and their families to get the help that is required to assist them in reaching their full potential.

CBIT supports thousands of families to access rehabilitation and legal services and to help them to understand how best to help their child. They create social opportunities so that families feel part of their communities and they provide schools with appropriate strategies and support to enable children and young people to achieve better educational and social outcomes.

SIA Case Management, delivered in partnership with the Spinal Injuries Association

For over forty years, the Spinal injuries Association have been at the forefront of providing advice and support to spinal cord injured (SCI) people, following an injury or diagnosis and for the rest of their lives. The charity passionately believes that those with SCI have an absolute right to lead a fulfilled and independent life, playing a role in society, and contributing how they choose.

Today the need is as great as ever; in the UK more than 1,000 people a year experience SCI and there are around 40,000 people living with SCI. There is no cure but with appropriate support and advice, people with SCI can lead fulfilling and independent lives. Living at home independently, being in work, and playing a full role in family life are all possible. But for some that’s not easily achievable and advice and support are needed. For many, discrimination and hostility still exist including, for example, the fight for a suitable care package or the difficulties faced by at least 30% of people with new injuries who don’t visit a NHS Spinal Cord Injury Centre for specialist rehabilitation.

The Spinal Injuries Association show people that they are not alone in their disability. Their Peer Support Officers – who all have personal experience of SCI – provide hope and support to people with SCI as they adjust to the new challenges of everyday life. The charity’s Freephone Advice Line provides support on issues such as bladder and bowel management, house adaptations, or accessible holidays. Their Public Affairs Team campaigns for change and fairness – such as ensuring that everyone injured has access to a specialist NHS Spinal Cord Injuries Centre, or protecting people’s rights to suitable care.

They currently have approximately 10,000 members of which 7,100 have a SCI. More than 50% of their staff and 80% of their trustees are SCI. The daily experiences of the charity’s members – their concerns, challenges and aspirations – drive their vision for a fulfilled life for everyone affected by SCI.
