Support our Right to Rehab campaign and help us call on the government to recognise that people have a right to effective community rehabilitation services.
The case for community rehabilitation
- Only 40% of the 1.3m people living with traumatic brain injury receive rehabilitation.
- After a hip fracture, only 1 in 5 services provide people with immediate rehabilitation on discharge from hospital.
In too many cases, people access services too late – or not at all. We found that for all conditions, support with rehabilitation is a postcode lottery.
This is a scandal that ruins lives, keeping people out of work and depriving them of their independence, while bringing ever-greater costs for the NHS and social care.
