Brain Injuries

If your child is affected by a medical condition or disability we can help. Call our freephone helpline on 0808 808 3555 to get information, support and advice. You can also browse our range of parent guides on aspects of caring for a disabled child in our resource library.

To meet other parents see support groups below or meet other parents online in our online community.

We no longer hold a description of Brain Injuries. You may find it more helpful to search for a particular or specific condition in our online medical information instead.
