Christchurch Group is one of the UK's largest providers of specialist, residential care for adults with an acquired brain injury. It has an excellent reputation for slow-stream rehabilitation, supporting and guiding the adults in its care to develop and maintain social and functional skills.
At the time of acquisition, the Group operated from adjacent facilities in Northampton in a community setting. Since investment Christchurch has more than trebled in size through: acquiring Birmingham-based Hunters Moor; opening a full-service neuro-rehabiliation unit in York; and opening a new step-down community facility in Bedford.
Christchurch has also developed a transitional living space in Northampton, extending the care pathway.
An estimated 135,000 people are admitted to a hospital each year as a consequence of a brain injury in the UK and Christchurch Group has seen demand for its services increase.
