A self-help group for those living with neurological conditions around Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire.

Bio on Tanmay, Group Coordinator & Ambassador at the Brain & Spine Foundation

Hi everyone!

I’m Tanmay, a student at the University of Bristol. I am currently studying Neuroscience, which is what sparked my interest in understanding neurological disorders, and the impact they have. I have been an ambassador for the Brain and Spine Foundation in October 2023 and I have met some amazing people and heard some amazing stories since.

My goals as an ambassador are:

-To bring more awareness to neurological diseases within the youth and student populations

-To try and inform those involved in the B&S Foundation of new updates in the scientific world surrounding neurological disease

-To support my local community by encouraging conversation around these topics.

Outside of the foundation, I am a keen sportsman, with most of my week dedicated to cricket and the gym!  I can often be found trying something new, whether it is exploring religion, or trying my hand at photography.

Day and time to run the group

The group would meet on the first Friday of each month at 3pm, starting from the 3rd of May.

Why am I running this self-help group?

I am running this self-help group as I want to create a platform to support those with neurological diseases in the South-West of England. I cannot wait to give people the opportunity to share their stories and create a supporting environment.
This group is an opportunity for those with neurological disorders to spend some time with others in a similar position, understand everyone’s background, and support each other in a light-hearted and relaxed setting.
