CEREBRA - Legal, Social and Financial
Being the parent of a child with a brain condition or learning disability means you may need to access legal, social and financial help at various times for different reasons. Cerebra have created a wide range of resources and guides to help you with some of the difficult decisions and tasks involved
Family Fund provide grants to families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. There are other charities and grant-making bodies similar to Family Fund, who can also provide grants to families who need them.
A grant is financial help given to an individual for a specific purpose from a grant-making body. Grants can be given as money, products or services and they don't have to be paid back. Grant-making bodies can be governmental, private corporations or charitable trusts and foundations.'
Cerebra are holding their first ever live Q&A session over on their Facebook group on 13th July 2022 between 11am and 12pm! The topic for this Q&A, as chosen by you, will be ‘getting social care support for your child in England’.
The Q&A will be in a written format rather than a live video so you can drop in to the session whenever you want. You are welcome to submit your questions before the start of the session and then our team will respond during the 11 – 12 window.
Please note that you must be a member of the Cerebra Parent Group to take part.
