We are the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. Our national specialist centre is in Tadworth, Surrey, where we provide rehabilitation to children with acquired brain injury and specialist medical/transitional care to children with complex health needs.

Our other services include expert community-based support for children with acquired brain injury and online support for families via our Brain Injury Hub website (www.braininjuryhub.co.uk)

We also run The Children’s Trust School, a non-maintained residential special school in Tadworth for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and complex health needs.

Feedback and complaints procedure
Please contact enquiries@thechildrenstrust.org.uk with any complaints you may have.
How will I know my child/ young person will be safe using this service?
Each child has their own assessment and tailored programmes/timetables which cater for their individual needs. We are inspected by Ofsted and CQC as well as carrying out our own ongoing monitoring including feedback from staff, families and children where possible.

All staff and volunteers are required to complete and pass DBS prior to commencement of employment or placement. Our services are regulated by Ofsted and CQC, and we have robust safeguarding and whistleblowing procedures to ensure the safety of the children and young people we work with.

Safety is of paramount importance to us and ratios of staff to children are worked out in accordance with their needs. Our site is secure with all of our residential houses featuring keypad entry and all visitors must be supervised onsite. Whilst we encourage the children and young people to access play and leisure activities and the local community, this is fully-staffed and always with risk assessments having been carried out.
