In 2016 our ‘Go Herdwick’ project helped raise initial funding for this project, to develop the Old Windebrowe farmhouse and tithe barn near Keswick into a new specialist rehabilitation centre. The Grade II Listed building which dates back to the 1570’s was once home to William Wordsworth.
We have secured almost 80% of the £1,125,180 needed and are now urgently seeking the final £226,943.

Event details

Acquired Brain Injury Appeal

Lake District Calvert Trust has extensively researched and piloted a new model of rehabilitation, & are now developing a unique service for people with an acquired brain injury (ABI) that will build on our existing expertise.

Brain injuries are devastating to people’s lives and abilities. New research shows that with the right rehabilitation the brain can continue to develop new neural pathways, bypassing damaged areas, and producing a greater long-term recovery than previously believed possible. Learning new skills, working with others, and physical exercise, are the key elements that form the core of the Lake District Calvert Trust’s exceptional work with disabled people.

Now, in partnership with leading clinicians and academics, we are combining our expertise with the latest thinking in neuroscience; we plan to harness these components to support brain injury survivors in a new, ground-breaking residential centre. This intensive post-acute rehabilitation will transform the lives of people who are affected by this invisible and under-treated condition, whilst providing a replicable model for other organisations.
