The Children’s Trust

General Demolition are proud supporters of The Children’s Trust. The Children’s Trust, based in Tadworth Surrey is the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury.  The Trust runs a range of specialist care, education and therapy services for children and young people from across the UK, including the UK’s largest rehabilitation centre for children with acquired brain injury.

In June, the 8 year old daughter of a member of our staff suffered an ischaemic stroke while at school.  As a result, she was left with paralysis on one side of her body and difficulty with her speech.  Issy spent six weeks at St Georges Hospital in London before being transferred to The Children’s Trust and started a three month rehabilitation placement where her goal was to relearn some of the skills she had lost.

Now back at home, Issy has made remarkable progress in the last four months,  however she still has a long road of rehabilitation ahead of her.   We wish her well in her recovery.
