Why we need your support

"Shine have helped us by providing literature, support to nursery, and introducing us to other families."

A few months after Charlie's surgery, his family started to look for help. Through the Child Brain Injury Trust, they were referred to Shine and were able to meet other families like theirs. It can be very isolating to be in a situation others struggle to understand, but through Little Stars coffee mornings, the family were able to meet others who really understood.
