The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) covers a range of provision that offers a care pathway that is accessible at any point following an acquired brain injury (ABI). All BIRT services provide assessment and rehabilitation, with varying levels of clinical support depending on individual need.
BIRT’s rehabilitation pathway includes acute services for people who have nursing and medical needs and independent hospital settings for people with severely challenging behaviour and / or who need to be detained under the Mental Health Act.
Our neurobehavioural centres provide the ideal environment for post-acute and / or medically stable individuals to receive intensive assessment and rehabilitation, before discharge home or to accommodation with less support. Most centres have transitional living options nearby for people who want to try out or consolidate their independent living skills before discharge.
Our continuing rehabilitation services are for people with longer term needs, with less clinical input than our neurobehavioural centres.
We offer Outreach Services in the South West and North West of England. These clinical rehabilitation therapy services are delivered in individuals’ own homes. We also offer support and enablement to people through our community services division.
