Welcome to Tŷ Aberdafen, The BIRT Centre for Wales

Situated in Llanelli, Tŷ Aberdafen has 24 beds and 18 of those have en-suite rooms in the main centre. The Centre also contains two independent living flats and four fully furnished self contained apartments. The Centre forms a part of the UK-wide network of services provided by national charity the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).

The BIRT Centre for Wales offers a range of high quality assessment and rehabilitation options for people with complex psychological and physical needs following an acquired brain injury (ABI).

These include:

  • an intensive assessment and rehabilitation service for individuals who may then be discharged home or to a supported living environment in the community
  • transitional living options so people can maximise their independent living and social skills prior to their return to an environment with less support
  • Continuing rehabilitation for those who have completed intensive rehabilitation and need to consolidate progress before moving on to the community and / or for those with longer term needs

Individuals may have severe cognitive, physical and / or emotional problems which could include:

  • Verbal and physical aggression
  • Impaired social functioning
  • Disinhibited behaviour
  • Neuropsychiatric symptoms

It is our goal to enable service users to function as independently as possible, develop their lives as they choose and participate in the wider community.
