Research Strategy

In the UK today there are around half a million children and young people with brain conditions that result in complex medical, educational and social support needs. Our research work across neurodevelopmental conditions gives us a unique perspective within the charity research sector that allows us to provide research-driven solutions and advice to those who need it most.

We want all children to have the maximum opportunity to achieve and participate in society.

At Cerebra we approach, fund and help to develop research in a unique way that expresses our key values.  To that end we support research aimed at reducing the prevalence of disabling conditions that have their origin in pregnancy. We also fund research that gives families of children with brain conditions access to the highest quality evidence-based information and support so they can begin to tackle the challenges they face and make informed decisions about what is right for them.

Forging partnerships with pioneers in their field is key to the research-driven solutions and services we provide.

We  continue to support high quality discovery research that can improve the quality of life for children with neurodevelopmental conditions and their families.
