Why run for us?

Imagine the relief of getting your child home from hospital after they have recovered from a life threatening illness or accident. It seems as though the nightmare is finally over but, for the family of a child who has sustained an acquired brain injury, this might only be the beginning of their journey.

A childhood acquired  brain injury can be caused by an accident - even falling off your bike – an illness such as meningitis or encephalitis, a poisoning, drowning, stroke or brain tumour. Whilst bones can mend and scars may fade, a brain injury is with you for life, affecting everything you think, feel and do.

Often referred to as an 'invisible disability', brain injury can lead to problems for children and young people that make learning, socialising and family life very difficult. However, the outcomes can be remarkably different if they access the right support at the right time. The Child Brain Injury Trust is the only charity in Scotland providing support to a child with any type of acquired brain injury and we can only keep doing this thanks to your help. Thank you for considering us.
