The Brain & Spine Foundation is the only UK-wide charity providing information and support for every one of the over 470 neurological disorders which affect 1 in 6 people in the UK.
Our expert services are there for people at every stage, from first symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and in the long term.
Neurological conditions and associated treatments are often complex and poorly understood by those affected and their families. Many people wait for a long time for diagnosis while living with ongoing symptoms and the anxiety of not knowing what the future holds. The Brain & Spine Foundation exists to provide information, answer questions, reduce anxiety and to inform choices.
The charity is entirely funded by voluntary donations from our supporters; we receive no government funding.
Our Helpline team provide tailored information and specialist support for anyone affected by a neurological problem. We’re here to help if you have questions about a neurological problem or concerns about a member of your family or a friend. We also support health professionals in their work, answering questions and signposting to patient services.
You can either talk to us or email us for information and support. The helpline is confidential – If you don’t want to say who you are, that’s no problem.
