Why work with us

When you experience a change in your ability and are unable to do the usual things in your day to life, it can be overwhelming, not just for you, but for those who know and love you.

We are experts in promoting independence, despite catastrophic injury or life changing illness, and are here to support and guide you on your journey to recovery.

We support children (aged over 14) and adults with:

  • an injury at birth or during childhood.
  • acquired brain injury including traumatic brain injury after an accident or personal injury, anoxia, stroke, and haemorrhage.
  • progressive neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia and MS.
  • We also have experience supporting people with other complex needs including polytrauma, chronic pain and Functional Neurological Disorders.

Where we work
We are all northerners, born and bred with a team spread across the North East. We can cover most areas within an hour including Tyne & Wear, Teesside, Durham, Northumberland, North Cumbria and the Scottish borders.

We want to make sure our team travel time and costs are proportionate to the therapy we undertake and are happy to discuss this with legal teams as needed.
