More details outlining how we are providing a safe environment to welcome everyone to our service.

And now taking referrals

Every year hundreds of thousands of people suffer life-changing brain injuries. They face a long and difficult road to recovery, often with limited support.

We are the UK’s first intensive acquired brain injury rehabilitation centre focused on outdoor activities.

The Lake District Calvert Trust has challenged disability through outdoor adventure for over 40 years. Now, working with leading clinicians and academics, the new Calvert Reconnections Neuro-Rehabilitation Centre is offering ground-breaking, world-class acquired brain injury rehabilitation programmes tailored to support each individual in their recovery.

Led by an interdisciplinary team, this six-month residential programme will transform lives – offering motivation, developing life skills, providing vocational activity and encouraging outdoor adventure.

Ultimately, Calvert Reconnections offers individuals tangible results and real pathways back into everyday life.

What the industry experts say...

“The Calvert Reconnections concept is brilliant. I am sure there will be many people with brain and other neurological injuries who will benefit from this centre. It is unique in the UK and a much needed service which I am sure will succeed and be much in demand.”

Professor Mike Barnes, Expert Advisor to Calvert Reconnections

What ABI participants say…

“I used to say ‘I live to fight another day’. When I come here I say ‘I live to enjoy another day’ because after all, without hope, there can be no recovery.”

John Gaimster, ABI survivor and Calvert Reconnections advocate
