Welcome to 1101 Bristol Road
Located in Birmingham, 1101 Bristol Road is a specialist residential centre that provides continuing rehabilitation and specialist care and support for up to eight people with an acquired brain injury.
We work with people who have to cope with a range of cognitive, physical and/or emotional symptoms following a severe brain injury. Rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focuses on enabling service users to function more independently and to participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible, while developing their lives with privacy, dignity and respect.
All service users have an individually tailored rehabilitation programme and are involved in setting their personal goals. The programme may include educational and therapeutic sessions and support, personal, social and domestic skills, guided leisure time, behavioural management, community access and vocational support/training. Service users are actively involved in reviewing their progress against agreed outcomes.
The duration of a placement varies depending on an individual's needs. Some service users move home or on to live in a more independent, less supported environment in the community

About 1101 Bristol Road
Who we support
In addition to our general admission criteria many service users are admitted to our neurobehavioural centres directly from NHS hospitals and, after a period of rehabilitation, are discharged home or to more independent living environment, sometimes with part time support.
Our brain injury rehabilitation services are for people who experience some / any of the following symptoms:
- Cognitive problems including thinking, memory, problem solving, learning, awareness and perception
- Physical impairments that affect mobility, posture or dexterity
- Physical and verbal aggression
- Communication difficulties
- Challenging behaviour
When he was 12 years old, Michael sustained a traumatic brain injury when he was hit by a car whilst cycling. He received rehabilitation and care at several different placements, but his impulsivity and challenging behaviour prevented practical recovery. When he transferred to 1101 Bristol Road, Michael made significant progress in engaging with his rehabilitation programme. Now in his twenties, Michael has much more control over his impulsivity and destructive behaviours, is practising walking, and is able to cook a healthy meal from scratch with support from staff. He is taking steps towards his ultimate goal of living independently with care. Read more about Michael’s story.

Situated within the Bournville Village Trust Estate, 1101 Bristol Road offers attractive and accessible accommodation for eight service users, comprising seven en suite bedrooms, complemented by spacious communal areas. There is also a separate flat where individuals can be supported towards independent living in the community.
Service users enjoy access to a wide range of therapeutic and recreational activities including a rehabilitation kitchen, a large garden and an activity room which offers a range of arts and crafts and use of computers. With its close proximity to leisure facilities and easy access to Birmingham city centre, 1101 Bristol Road is ideally situated for social integration and offers opportunities for education and work placements.
After a period of rehabilitation at 1101 Bristol Road, some individuals may move on to supported living in the community. BIRT offers a supported living scheme in Birmingham which enables individuals to live in the community, but with all the support they need for up to 24 hours a day. We support individuals to develop their own person-centred support plan embracing their lifestyle choices and including input from family members and professionals involved in their care.
