Neurological conditions (disorders of the brain and spine) are more common than most people think. In addition to the more familiar conditions such as brain tumours, stroke, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy there are around 350 different disorders which affect over 12 million people in the UK every year.
We provide a helpline run by trained neuroscience nurses that provide people suffering with a neurological condition with medical advice and support on a wide range of conditions and queries. Many callers are simply concerned about symptoms such as dizziness, headaches or face pain while others may be seeking clarification about a specific condition or about an examination they need to undergo.
We are the only UK wide charity providing support on the full range of neurological conditions.
“I called the Helpline and had an amazing chat with Eva, so much relevant information delivered with great patience and understanding. This is the first time I've called the Helpline and I wish I'd done it ages ago. It’s such a brilliant source of information and support for people like me as it can be so hard for us to find this kind of specific help and understanding for our conditions.”
The charity receives no government funding and is entirely funded by voluntary donations.
