We run the UK’s largest paediatric residential rehabilitation service for children with brain injury. Each child has an individual programme of therapy, education and care. It is funded by NHS England via National Specialist Commissioning or via CCGs.
The Children’s Trust School is non- maintained for children ages 3 upwards with learning difficulties. We combine education, therapy, care and medical cover to cater for children with complex medical needs, degenerative conditions and sensory impairments.
Our residential short breaks offer flexible and nurse-led care for children and young people between the ages of 0 to 18. We also offer holiday schemes and Saturday clubs for children from Surrey with complex needs.
We provide a nurse-led service for children who are technology-dependent. This includes children: who have a complex tracheostomy; require artificial ventilation; fed via parental nutrition; need central line management/ intravenous medication.
Our Brain Injury Community Team supports children and young people in challenges around cognition, communication/ behaviour and gives them the best opportunity to succeed in school. The team works closely with the child’s family, school/ local agencies.

- Staffing arrangements
Staffing levels varied according to need
- Staff training to support children/young people with SEND
We have an unparalleled reputation in our field thanks to our commitment to meeting the diverse needs of these children and their families, coupled with our ability to deliver the best possible combination of nursing, therapy, medical care and education. Staff undertake continuing professional development both in-house and externally and are fully trained to meet the diverse needs of the children we work with. All staff undertake safeguarding training and first aid training is completed as required.
- Communicating with service users details
Our specialist multidisciplinary team ensure that each child has their own individualised method of communication – whether signs and symbols or augmented or alternative communication aids such as eye gaze or iPads – best suited to them. This ensures they are involved in their programmes and can make choices and make their opinions/feelings known, even if they’re unable to speak verbally.
Families are fully involved at their child's placement at The Children's Trust and are invited to attend regular meetings and their feedback is welcomed. The progress of children is documented and openly shared with parents and carers.
