Brain injury support in London
SweetTree is the largest provider of community-based services for people with acquired brain injuries and long-term neurological conditions in the United Kingdom. The Acquired Brain Injury Service at SweetTree is commissioned by more than 50% of London based local authorities, NHS bodies, insurance companies and private case managers. The dedicated Brain Injury Service credits this success to the professional and highly skilled SweetTree support workers, who are skilled in rehabilitation and have a distinct “can do” attitude.
As part of the wider Brain Injury Service, the specialist Neurological Conditions Service at SweetTree offers the highest quality personal care and support to enable people to remain in their own homes with dignity, independence and control over their lives. Each person-centred care package focuses on individuals’ background, preferred lifestyle and wishes for the future. Care plans thereafter are regularly reviewed to provide a flexible approach to changing and complex needs.

One family member told us, “The staff are willing to think outside the box and come up with different ideas. For example, arranging treasure hunts in the local park where he goes
walking to make it more interesting.”
