Supporting Early Minds Research Network aims to identify, facilitate, and support the existing research infrastructure focusing on the development of accessible, acceptable, and targeted interventions aimed at the cognitive and mental well-being of infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers and their families from diverse backgrounds. The network’s core activities include supporting non-research organisations, services and settings (such as Health Visiting Services), in England, to become research active, particularly in support of developing research readiness for involvement in current and future research studies. Supporting Early Minds is part of the Mental Health in Development Theme of the Oxford Health NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.

Harry's Hydrocephalus Awareness Trust (Harry's HAT)


We are user-led registered national charity that works tirelessly to make life better for children with hydrocephalus and the families who love and care for them.

Every year around 1 in 770 babies and children in the UK will develop the condition, so it is vital that we raise awareness.

We provide training for health care professionals so they can learn more about hydrocephalus and consequently improve patient care.

To reduce isolation, we provide support for families through our peer-to-peer support programme.

We campaign for better awareness of head circumference measurement as tool for early diagnosis through our Get-A-Head campaign.
