Services

To ensure the delivery of our services meets identified needs, we have undertaken wide consultation and  taken on board the views and recommendations of a number of sources, including families living with the effects of an acquired brain injury and a range of health professionals. Additionally the Founder of our charity knows what help and support both her and her family needed at the time of her son’s accident.  Unfortunately these were not available.

This means that all our services are developed, not only on a clearly identified need, but from a personal ‘living the nightmare’ perspective.

As such we believe we are in the unique position of providing ‘what people actually need’ as opposed to what people ‘think they need’. Our deeper understanding enables us to develop and deliver services that make a real and measurable difference to the children and families who need us. We believe in:

Aiming Higher: Achieving More

We understand that the rehabilitation journey towards recovery is a marathon and not a short sprint.  Neurological improvements take time and progress is sometimes erratic and frustratingly slow.    We know that short term uncoordinated interventions do not deliver the right outcomes for people; so we offer a range of integrated services for children, young people and their families aimed at supporting them for the long-term.

"There are problems with getting people into neuro-rehab. Those most in need are often those most excluded due to a lack of socio-economic resources."
Vicki Anderson; Australia
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
Roberta De Pompeii; USA
"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
"Parent-supported interventions after paediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
Eric Hermans; Netherlands
This is the best support plan we have ever seen that will deliver the best outcomes for this young person.  The costings are 'spot on' and realistic'.  Direct Payments Team.  
"My colleague was blown away by the tremendous work your organisation is doing for society."  Social Worker
"More play increases brain plasticity and makes for better recovery post brain injury"
Professor Bryan Kolb; Canada
"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
"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
I was very impressed with the results you have had with the young people you have worked with.

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.
