Welcome to Kerwin Court

Located near Horsham in West Sussex, Kerwin Court is a specialist neurobehavioural rehabilitation centre for people with acquired brain injury (ABI).

About Kerwin Court

Kerwin Court specialises in the assessment and rehabilitation of people with an acquired brain injury and complex needs including physical, cognitive, behavioural and / or emotional difficulties, including physical or verbal aggression, impaired social functioning and disinhibited behaviour.

Specialist rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focused on enabling service users to function more independently, develop their lives as they choose and participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible.

We aim to guide service users through the entire process of rehabilitation, as well as offering support, education and continuing help to their families, carers and friends. We actively promote the involvement of families in the rehabilitation process, and home leave is encouraged wherever possible.
