Welcome to Redford Court
Located in the vibrant city of Liverpool, Redford Court is an assessment and neurorehabilitation centre for up to 24 people with acquired brain injury.
Specialist rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focuses on enabling service users to function more independently, develop their lives as they choose and to participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible.
At the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) 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.

- Cognitive problems including thinking, memory, problem solving, learning, awareness and perception
- Physical impairments that affect mobility, posture or dexterity
- Physical and verbal aggression
- Communication difficulties
