Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT)
The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) is the charity leading brain injury rehabilitation across the UK. We offer specialised assessment and rehabilitation services for people suffering a disability as a result of brain injury, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke and other forms of acquired brain injury.
Founded in 1992, BIRT provides specialist assessment and rehabilitation at specialist centres across England and Scotland, enabling people who have suffered brain injury to function as independently as possible, develop their lives as they choose and participate in the wider community.
Our clinical expertise, outstanding facilities and dedication to care mean that BIRT service users are able to develop a recovery plan that suits their exact needs. We believe that it is never too late to benefit from rehabilitation and ensure that people using our services are supported to regain maximum independence.
BIRT is a division of The Disabilities Trust, a leading UK charity which provides services to people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, autism and brain injury.
The Disabilities Trust is a company limited by guarantee incorporated in England and Wales under 2334589 and registered as a charity in England and Wales under 800797 (BIRT:800797-1) and in Scotland under SCO38972 (BIRT:SCO43579).
The National Brain Appeal
The National Brain Abrain inppeal is the only charity dedicated to raising funds for The National Hospital and the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology (IoN).
Queen Square is regarded as the ‘cradle of British neurology’. It is one of the world’s leading neuroscience centres providing translational research, diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with neurological and neuromuscular conditions including multiple sclerosis (MS), dementia, brain cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, brain injury and many more.
One in six people in the UK are affected by a neurological condition. That’s more than the number of people living with cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes combined. In spite of this there has been a continuing lack of national prioritisation to deliver better outcomes for those affected.
Our aim is to improve the outcome and quality of life for everyone with a neurological disorder by funding pioneering research, providing access to the latest technology for expert diagnosis and training tomorrow’s leading clinicians.
Your help can make this possible.

The Brainwave Centre
Since 1982, Brainwave has worked with more than 3,200 families throughout the country to deliver individual home-based Therapy Programmes that help children with additional needs.
Brainwave supports children with physical and/or cognitive disabilities, whether caused by brain injury like cerebral palsy, a genetic condition like Down syndrome, autism, or general developmental delay.
Importantly and uniquely, the Brainwave Team empowers parents and carers to deliver therapy to their children at home as they believe the family home is where children respond best – with the people whose love and care is unparalleled.
This is a Charity that really does change children’s lives.
Brain Research UK
The brain is the most complex organ in our body. It weighs just 3lb, yet it controls our emotions, senses and actions. Every single one of them. It is how we process the world around us. So when it breaks down, we break down.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
There are hundreds of neurological conditions including Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia, Brain Tumours, Stroke, Parkinson's Disease and Epilepsy.
We fund the best research to discover the causes, develop new treatments and improve the lives of those affected.
Help loved ones live better, longer.
