    What is the Children’s Burns Trust?


    What is the Children’s Burns Trust?

    The Children’s Burns Trust is a national charity which supports the families of children with burn or scald injuries. The charity also works to prevent and raise awareness of burn and scald accidents. They work with NHS professionals, providing funding and help for rehabilitation, and they also work across the country on prevention campaigns, providing families and hospitals with information and financial support.

    Whilst the NHS provides a good standard of emergency care for scald and burn accidents, there is currently not enough funding in place for follow-up care. Many children face not only the psychological impact of their injuries, but also self-confidence and self-image issues. The Children’s Burns Trust is the only charity in the UK which is dedicated to assisting NHS staff in restoring children to their ‘pre-injury condition’ – aesthetically, intellectually and socially, helping them to enjoy a better quality of life.

    If your child has been burned or scalded in an accident, you may be able to claim compensation for their injuries. The Children’s Burns Trust can offer support and advice as well as financial assistance when it comes to follow-up care.

    Has your child been burned or scalded?

    When your child is injured, it seems like the worst thing in the world, and you naturally want to do anything you can to make them better. If your child has been burned or scalded in an accident at nursery, school or in a public place, you may be able to claim compensation for their injuries, if somebody else has been negligent. For example, if someone has spilt a hot drink on your child or if they have been left unsupervised at nursery whilst washing their hands under hot water, you could consider claiming compensation. The extent of your child’s injuries will, to some point, determine the amount of compensation you’ll receive – other factors will be taken into account too, such as any ongoing care and support they will need throughout their lives, and the psychological effect their injuries have had.
