A unique charity set up to help improve the lives of children with brain related conditions through research, education and directly supporting the children and their carers. Cerebra aims to help all children up to 16 years with neurodevelopment disorders and conditions, their parents, carers and professional practitioners.
Cerebra grants are to help children (aged 16 or younger) who have disabilities because of a brain related condition or injury. The condition may be of a physical nature, a learning disability or both. Cerebra offer direct and practical assistance to improve the quality of life of children and young people, e.g. sensory toys, tricycles and quadricycles and touch screen computers. Applications must be supported by two references, one of which must be from a medical professional. Grants are paid to suppliers, not directly to the child/family.
