Recruiting soon!

February 15th, 2016

Matrix Neurological is delighted to announce we have been successful in securing funding from the South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group from their Community Innovation Fund. This funding will enable us to recruit a family support worker who will provide advocacy and support to parent carers of children living with a brain injury. They will work closely with parents in hospital to offer help and support during the discharge process and continue to support them once their child is back at home. There will also be practical help and support through our volunteer scheme where our volunteers will offer a befriending service and a listening ear as well as offer practical support.


"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we deliver neuro-rehab services to children and young people"

"We are impressed with the progress you have made with the individual we referred to you."  Social Worker    
"We need to harness the power of brain plasticity for treating children and young people with brain injury, especially at the key ages of 0-3 and at ages 10-16"
Professor Bryan Kolb; Canada
"Brain development is complex and prolonged. Brain plasticity is influenced by a range of factors. Plasticity provides a base for neuro-rehab therapies and treatment"
Professor Bryan Kolb; Canada
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."

"Thousands of children and young people living in the UK today without the help and support that can make a huge difference to their lives"
Dalton Leong; Chief Executive of the Children's Trust
"NHS clinicians struggle with what intervention to prioritise in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation due to limited clinical time and the complexity of needs. Children, clinicians, parents and schools all have different neuro-rehabilitation priorities"
Recolo; United Kingdom
"Children and young people have poor social competence post brain injury due to reduced cognition, executive functions, and emotional control. As a result they are twice as likely to have mental health issues in the future"
James Tonks; University of London
"Rehabilitation interventions can lead to positive outcomes for children and their families if delivered in the familiar home environment and applied to everyday situations"
Cerebra; United Kingdom

OUR MISSION: To work to remove inequalities for children & young people affected by acquired brain injury; and provide effective support to their families that makes a real difference.
