Referrals with Brainkind

Brainkind has services across the UK that support people with acquired brain injuries and other neurological conditions. We want the people we work with to live as independently as possible and to meet their goals – whatever they are.

For over 40 years, we have supported people to move forward with their lives.

This support includes brain injury assessment and rehabilitation centres, supported living accommodation, and in the community.

We accept referrals from professionals working with people who may benefit from our care and rehabilitation services.

Brainkind’s approach

We use a neurobehavioural therapy approach to support people with brain injuries to regain their lost skills. This type of treatment helps us understand the effects of a brain injury on a person’s cognitive, emotional, physical and social skills. Our clinical teams use a range of assessments and evidence-based interventions to respond to changes in these skills.

Every brain injury is different, and everyone will react differently to rehabilitation. Our approach aims to help people regain the skills they have lost after a brain injury to the best of their abilities.

The people we support are at the heart of everything we do. Our teams work closely with each person to understand what they want and why. This collaborative approach guides their treatment.

Studies show that brain injury rehabilitation, which looks at all aspects of a person’s behaviour is most effective at reducing their cognitive and functional impairments. The severity of the injury or time since it happened, are not determining factors.

From music therapy to sessions with psychologists, our teams of specialists use different interventions to help people come to terms with what has happened to them and adjust to these difficulties.

Our approach to rehabilitation focuses on increasing people’s quality of life and helping them take part in social activities.
