Brain Injuries

Brain Research UK

The brain is the most complex organ in our body. It weighs just 3lb, yet it controls our emotions, senses and actions. Every single one of them. It is how we process the world around us. So when it breaks down, we break down.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

There are hundreds of neurological conditions including Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia, Brain Tumours, Stroke, Parkinson's Disease and Epilepsy.

We fund the best research to discover the causes, develop new treatments and improve the lives of those affected.

Help loved ones live better, longer.

The National Brain Appeal

The National Brain Appeal raises funds for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and the Institute of Neurology (jointly known as Queen Square).
The National Hospital is one of the world’s leading centres for the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with a wide range of neurological and neuromuscular conditions including multiple sclerosis (MS), brain cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, Prion disease, and brain injury.

One in six people in the UK are affected by a neurological condition. That’s more than the number of people living with cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes combined. In spite of this there has been a continuing lack of national prioritisation to deliver better outcomes for those affected. Our aim is to improve the outcome and quality of life for everyone with a neurological disorder by funding pioneering research, providing access to the latest technology for expert diagnosis and training tomorrow’s leading clinicians. Your help can make this possible.

Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT)

The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) is the charity leading brain injury rehabilitation across the UK. We offer specialised assessment and rehabilitation services for people suffering a disability as a result of brain injury, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke and other forms of acquired brain injury.

Founded in 1992, BIRT provides specialist assessment and rehabilitation at specialist centres across England and Scotland, enabling people who have suffered brain injury to function as independently as possible, develop their lives as they choose and participate in the wider community.

Our clinical expertise, outstanding facilities and dedication to care mean that BIRT service users are able to develop a recovery plan that suits their exact needs. We believe that it is never too late to benefit from rehabilitation and ensure that people using our services are supported to regain maximum independence.

BIRT is a division of The Disabilities Trust, a leading UK charity which provides services to people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, autism and brain injury.
