Charity description

The Jemima Layzell Trust logo
We are a relatively new charity funding specialist equipment and therapy sessions to children with acquired brain injury or trauma.

Charlie, aged 3 and a half, suffered a stroke during cardiac surgery in 2015. He lost movement to his left side and the ability to understand and produce speech. Our equipment is helping Charlie to learn how to communicate again.
Aiden, aged 7, suffered weakness and loss of vision as the result of a brain tumour. He has just flown to America for proton therapy and without our tablet he would not be able to access educational applications or see his mum and little sister on Skype.
Harry, aged 2, suffers several seizures a day, following a gunshot wound to his head. By using our dark den and sensory toys he is gaining motion in the left side of his body and re-bonding with his brother. He has now been discharged from hospital.

From hospital equipment, to dark rooms and iPads we're proud of how much we've raised the last few years so that we've been able to help children with brain injury.

All the children we help are referred by either their occupational therapist, nurses and doctors on the neuro-rehab ward at Bristol Children's hospital. Or other charities like Marthacare (now part of the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal) Child Brain Injury Trust and the British Institute for Brain Injured Children.​
