Families where a child has a brain condition face challenges every day. Just to learn, play, make friends, enjoy and experience the world can feel difficult, even impossible. But we don’t believe there is any challenge that can’t be over come.
Our Vision is that every family that includes a child with a brain condition will have the chance to discover a better life together.
Our Mission is to listen to families that include children with brain conditions. We use what they tell us to inspire the best research and innovation. Then we help them put the knowledge into practice so they can discover a better life together.
Our key Values are:
- Positive: Our optimism helps families see past every barrier
- Inquisitive: A spirit of relentless discovery drives everything we do
- Together: Our researchers, practitioners and families go further when they travel together
It’s an incredibly rewarding journey for everyone involved. Why not be a part of it? You never know what we’ll discover together.

Who we help:
We use ‘brain condition’ to describe any disorder or disability that affects the brain, including those caused by illness, genetics or traumatic injury. Brain conditions include (but are not limited to) autism, ADHD, Down’s syndrome, learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and developmental delay.
We help children aged 16 or under.

Cerebra has been a certified member of the Information Standard since August 2013.
