About Us

MATRIX Neurological is a new charity that has been set up to provide practical help and support for children, young people and their families who are living with the effects of an acquired brain injury.

We have first-hand experience of child brain injury and the complex ongoing effects that influence everyday life.

Through personal experience and observation we know and understand:

  • what happens following and acquired brain injury and
  • how hard it is for children and young people to adjust back into ‘normal’ life again without the right support;
  • the impact an acquired brain injury has on parents, siblings and the family unit as a whole;
  • as well as the negative health effects that arise as a result of in-effective, disjointed and uncoordinated community support services.

Our ambition is to provide services; not only at the right, time, place and location for our clients; but also at the right frequency that will make a ‘real’ difference to individuals.

 


"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
Recolo; United Kingdom
"When someone has a brain injury, early access to local, specialist rehabilitation is crucial to ensure the maximum recovery and make significant savings to the state in health costs"
Headway; United Kingdom
"Pediatric neuro-rehabilitation cannot be delivered in isolation. The needs of the child have to be looked at both holistically and within the context of the family unit. Parents need to be empowered to be parents in post-acute pediatric neuro-rehabilitation following brain injury"
The Children's Trust; United Kingdom
I was very impressed with the results you have had with the young people you have worked with.
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
Roberta De Pompeii; USA
"Healthy teens are better at identifying strategies to deal with barriers. KIDS WITH ABI'S CAN'T!"
Shari Wade; USA
"Too often children and young people with ABI are discharged from hospital without specialist brain support that they and their families need to overcome lifelong challenges"
Andrew Ross; former Chief Executive of the Children's Trust
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
Caron Gan; Canada
