July 12, 2012 | By | Reply More

CARF International has announced that the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) has been accredited again for a period of three years for its:


  • Residential Rehabilitation Programmes – Brain Injury Programmes
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Programmes – Brain Injury Programmes
  • Home and Community Services – Brain Injury Programmes


The latest accreditation is the third consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities), has awarded to BIRT.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organisation and shows the organisation’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards.  An organisation receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process.  It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

BIRT, the UK charity leading brain injury rehabilitation, has been providing services since 1991.  It provides services to more than 550 people a year in its specialist residential centres, hospitals and community based services in England and Scotland. Lynn Turley Director, BIRT commented:


‘We are delighted that our services have again passed the rigorous checks and high standards that CARF set at achieve this accreditation – it is a testimony to the hard work and effort that our staff consistently deliver.’


CARF is an independent, non-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.  Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organisations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
