At Hyphen Law, we work with many families with children who’ve suffered life-changing brain injuries or who are living with serious brain-related conditions.

For those families, charities such as Cerebra offer a vital lifeline offering specialist advice, guidance, research and the very latest information to make their lives easier.

We have supported Cerebra for a number of years and are passionate about its important work. A national charity, founded in 2001, Cerebra exists to support children with brain conditions and their families throughout the length and breadth of the UK.

The charity also offers a unique product design service through the Cerebra Innovation Centre which designs and develops bespoke equipment for disabled and brain-injured children. Whilst there is specialist equipment on the market already; it often looks clinical or functional and is unappealing to children and young people. The centre creates fun solutions that not only look amazing but are practical and help reduce some of the social stigma associated with disabilities.

We were delighted to attend a champagne and canapé reception for Cerebra hosted by Bolt Burdon Kemp on 28th September 2017 to celebrate the charity’s important work supporting children with brain conditions and their families.

It was a chance to raise a glass to Cerebra’s inspiring achievements and learn more about the difference it has made to people’s lives.

We heard from CEO Chris Jones who spoke about the history of Cerebra and its plans for the future and also from Dr. Ross Head, former lecturer in Product Design at the University of Wales Trinity St. David, who now heads up the team in the Innovation Centre, who explained to the assembled guests the nature of the life-changing work they undertake.

Director of Hyphen Law Christine Bunting said: “What a wonderful evening celebrating Cerebra’s achievements. It was really inspirational and I’d like to thank Bolt Burdon Kemp for inviting us along.  As chair of London Minds, a group developed to raise the profile of Cerebra in the Capital and promote Cerebra’s fundraising initiatives, I was delighted that so many distinguished guests attended to celebrate its work and learn more about the charity.”
