Get Advice and Support

We help children with brain conditions and their families in many different ways. Through our services we can help you overcome obstacles you may be facing and enable you to discover a better life together with your amazing child.

All the support we offer is research-driven and evidence-based. From advice on legal, financial and social affairs to support with physical and mental health issues, our work is driven by listening to what you need.

DLA Guide

Anyone who has ever tried to fill in a Disability Living Allowance (DLA) claim form will know what a huge and daunting task it can be. Our step-by-step guide to filling it in makes it easier for you.

Physical Wellbeing

Children with brain conditions often also have complex physical needs. From issues with sleep and toilet training to learning how to manage pain and challenging behaviour, our wide-ranging support identifies and helps you with these problems.

Legal, Social and Financial

Dealing with statutory bodies and thinking about legal and financial affairs can be overwhelming, especially if you already care for a child with a brain condition. We can help you with the complex decisions and difficult tasks involved.

Education

Our guides help you understand your child's rights to education and transport services available. We also offer template letters to help you communicate with educational bodies should you need to.

Emotional and Mental Health

Families of children with brain conditions need to take extra care with their emotional and mental health. We know how important it is for the whole family to look after themselves.

Sleep Booklet

Our Sleep booklet introduces and explains different techniques for you to try that may improve your child's sleep. It covers ten main topics including bedtime routines, daytime napping, comfort objects and and moving bedtime backwards or forwards. It gives lots of illustrated hints and tips for putting the techniques into practice.
