Top Gear star Richard Hammond has given his backing to the launch of a new charity-funded website – BrainInjuryHub.co.uk – providing information and support to the parents of children with acquired brain injury (ABI).

The BBC presenter, who is a Vice-President of The Children's Trust and suffered a serious brain injury himself when he was involved in a car crash whilst filming in 2006, said:

“There are thousands of children in the UK living with the long-term effects of an acquired brain injury right now. Their injury will have a major impact on every aspect of their life – their education, relationships with family and friends and their future.

“The entire family needs robust information and support, but until now that just hasn’t been widely available. The Children’s Trust’s Brain Injury Hub will at last provide these families with the information they need and a forum to share their experiences. I’m proud to give it my backing.”
