There are more than 350 different conditions of the brain and spine and together they affect more than 12 million people in the UK. These conditions affect both children and adults and in many cases have long term impacts without the prospect of a cure. Neurological conditions and associated treatments are often complex and poorly understood by those affected and their families.
The Brain & Spine Foundation exists to provide this information and to be there during diagnosis, treatments and in the longer term, to answer questions and provide support throughout a patient's journey. We are the only UK wide charity providing support on the full range of neurological conditions.
The charity receives no government funding and is entirely funded by voluntary donations.
As members of the Institute of Fundraising we subscribe to their Code of Fundraising practice, which is the standard set by and expected of all members. By following the code our fundraising activities follow best-practice and so we aim to give trust and confidence to our supporters that we work ethically in all we do.
