The Brain Charity

 

The Brain Charity (formally Neurosupport) is a charity which provides non-medical advice, information and support to people with neurological conditions and their families.

They can provide information about your condition, or any aspect of living with a neurological condition. They can signpost you to a wide range of local and national support groups for specific conditions and to the most appropriate organisation for your query. Click here for their A-Z of conditions.

There is a comprehensive library of information in their fully-accessible centre, which is open to the public for reference. The enquiry service can be accessed by phone, email or in person by calling in to the centre.

They have an employment advice service, which offers support and advice around all aspects of employment following a diagnosis with a neurological condition or brain injury. They advise on job retention, vocational rehabilitation, re-training and alternatives to work, as well as offering confidence building course and case management.

Welfare benefits advice is available by appointment and there is a counselling service for people who need help to come to terms with their condition.

Rally Round Project

Rally Round is a free online support network which makes it easier for people needing support to let trusted friends and family members see how they can help out in practical ways. It can be used in a wide range of circumstances, as well as to support carers, such as during rehabilitation, when coming home from hospital, and supporting individuals who need help to remain independent in their own home.
