Located in Birmingham, 1101 Bristol Road is a specialist residential centre that provides continuing rehabilitation and specialist care and support for people with an acquired brain injury. It forms part of the nationwide network of rehabilitation support services provided by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).

What does it do?

1101 Bristol Road works 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.
