Eastfields is part of the continuum of care provided by The Disabilities Trust in Scotland. Eastfields in Glasgow opened in September 2015, extending its service provision for people with acquired brain injury (ABI) and complex needs.

In 2021 Eastfields doubled its occupancy, with a new extension to support an additional 12 people with brain injuries. The service will now be able to offer three separate bungalows providing 24 beds.

The Eastfields model of care has been very successful, and because there are few other providers of this brain injury rehabilitation model in Scotland, there is a high demand for this specialist service.
