Calvert Reconnections Today

Welcome to Calvert Reconnections


The UK’s first brain injury rehabilitation program led by traditional interdisciplinary clinical therapies, combining cognitive and physical activity in the outdoors with functional rehabilitation.

Calvert Reconnections provides a residential neuro-rehabilitation centre for people with post-acute, acquired brain injury, led by traditional clinical therapies with rehabilitation through the specialist use of outdoor activities and functional life skills. Our fully accessible residential facility is based within a beautifully adapted grade ll listed building in Keswick, the heart of the Lake District.

Specialising in Acquired Brain Injury rehabilitation, our residential programme focuses on an individual’s interests and builds a programme of activities and therapy into an engaging and interactive rehabilitation schedule. Activities such as canoeing, climbing, cycling, work placements, independent living skills and cooking can all be woven into a participants programme whist staying with us here in the Lake District.

We provide unique individualised rehabilitation opportunities utilising the outdoors to maximise recovery, enabling each person to reach their potential while having a different rehabilitation experience.

What are the facilities, therapies, and activities on offer?

The Calvert Reconnections approach combines the findings of the assessment and the participants goals and then enables a unique programme of activities to be designed with the individual that meets their needs physically, psychologically, emotionally, and socially to maximise their abilities.

Many of these goals will be met through engagement in outdoor activities which challenge the individual and promote physical and mental well-being. Activities of daily living and life skills are woven into the program to form a holistic wrap around approach.

Each participant has their own bedroom for privacy and dignity and there are plenty of social spaces within the Reconnections building where people can be together or spend quiet time alone.

Our facilities are all of the highest standard and provide an accessible and enabling environment for our participants, their family / carers during visits and for the delivery of assessments and the rehabilitation programmes.

Some of the feedback we’ve had from our participants speaks for itself about our rehabilitation service.


“I feel comfortable here, all the staff are really nice, they put up with me being confused or disagreeing, they are very patient.”

“Calvert Reconnections has turned my life around. I feel fitter both mentally and physically. It’s helping me to live a better life.”
