Disabilities

Cerebra

In the UK today there are around half a million children and young people with brain conditions that result in complex medical, educational and social support needs. We are a charity that helps these children and their families discover a better life together.

Families where a child has a brain condition face challenges every day. Just to learn, play, make friends, enjoy and experience the world can feel difficult, even impossible. But we don’t believe there’s any challenge that can’t be overcome.

So we listen to families, we learn from them, we work with them. We carry out research, we design and innovate, we make and share. From new equipment to new learning resources, to new ways to play and support each other, everything we find out together makes life better. It opens doors to discovering the world. It’s an incredibly rewarding journey for everyone involved. Why not be a part of it? You never know what we’ll discover together.

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.

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.
