TRU are aware of the challenges a brain injury can place upon families/loved ones . We believe that families/carers play a valuable part in a client’s rehabilitation and therefore we encourage a cohesive relationship between the client, family/loved ones, and the rehabilitation team.

TRU offers a diverse support network for families and loved ones, we are mindful that everyone is unique and have different ways of coping, so we are pleased to offer one to one and group support. Our team are happy to support directly or sign post to others within our organisation or externally. The service offers a non-judgemental space for family members to experience education days, support weekends and social activities. Clients and families are welcome to attend social events such as, drama group productions, summer fair, and bonfire night.

TRU Poem

There once was a cloud so big and so black.

That shone on our daughter and we thought she would never come back.

Then out of the blue came a place called TRU, with so much dedication it gave us some hope.

Now our daughters coming back that cloud is fading away.

We can see a new future, the family can too.

There’s a bright cloud now, and that’s down to you TRU.
