Research Advisory Committee Member

Cerebra

Location: Birmingham, Cardiff, Carmarthen, Leeds, London, Work from home
Salary: Not Specified
Hours: Part Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 5th December 2022
Closes: 3rd February 2023

At Cerebra, we believe that every family that includes a child with a brain condition will have the chance to discover a better life together.  We listen to families that have children with brain conditions. We use what they tell us to inspire the best research and innovation. Then we help them put the knowledge into practice so they can discover a better life together.

Our key values are summed up by three key words:

  1. Positive: our optimism helps families see past every barrier.
  2. Inquisitive: a spirit of relentless discovery drives everything we do.
  3. Together: our researchers, practitioners and families go further when they travel together.

Research We Support

We support research that gives families access to the highest quality evidence based information and support so they can begin to tackle the challenges they face and make informed decisions about what is right for them. We work with university researchers and families to achieve this.

Over the next five years, we will focus explicitly on supporting research to benefit the families of children with multiple and complex needs or rare conditions. In other words, needs characterised by a combination of physical disability, learning disability, development delay, physical and/or mental health problems, genetic diagnosis and/or autistic spectrum disorder.

Through our research and associated services, we want to promote understanding and to see a world where neurodiversity is respected and celebrated, where children with neurodevelopmental conditions get to fulfil their greatest potential without barriers to their complete participation in society.
