The Children’s Trust

  • Type of SEND provision:


The Children’s Trust runs the UK’s largest rehabilitation centre for children with brain injury. It also provides education for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties; and a range of therapies and care for children with complex health needs; short breaks and holiday camps. Support is also available for children across the county with brain injuries who have returned home, as well as online information and support for parents.

We run the UK’s largest paediatric residential rehabilitation service for children with brain injury. Each child has an individual programme of therapy, education and care. It is funded by NHS England via National Specialist Commissioning or via CCGs.

We provide a nurse-led service for children who are technology-dependent. This includes children: who have a complex tracheostomy; require artificial ventilation; fed via parenteral nutrition; need central line management/intravenous medication.

Our Brain Injury Community Team supports children and young people in challenges around cognition, communication/behaviour and gives them the best opportunity to succeed in school. The team works closely with the child’s family, school/local agencies.
