Neuro Voices: Your experience at the heart of what we do
Our services are changing, and we need your help to change them for the better. Could you give us your time, or lend us your voice, to help us improve the lives of people with neurological problems?
We are busy working on a lot of things that excite us – from new and updated information resources, to an expansion and enhancement of our Helpline and peer support offer, and even large projects that we believe could transform neurological care in the future.
We can’t do any of this without you. If you have a lived experience of neurological problems, and would be interested in shaping our future, then let’s talk. We have lots of ways to get involved – by reviewing our information, sharing your story with us, or advising us on what people like you need and want from our charity.
By sharing your story, using your experiences, and the skills you bring from everyday life, you would be helping us to help thousands of other people. And we think that you would get something from the experience as well.
Read on for some of the ways you can get involved with us. Then complete the sign-up form or email [email protected] if you’d like to speak with us first.

Review our information
Our award-winning booklets, fact sheets and articles help people to live better with a neurological problem. We need to be sure that what we write is clear and understandable, and that it talks about the things that really matter to the people reading it. You can help by reviewing our information and giving us your feedback on how to make it better.
