Supporting you

We offer practical and emotional support to individuals affected by brain and spine problems, their carers and family

The Brain & Spine Foundation is the only UK-wide charity providing professional support and expert information for all 600+ neurological conditions. If you are struggling with painful symptoms and don’t know where to turn, we offer practical guidance and emotional reassurance. If you need help understanding complex medical information, we provide clarity. If you just need to talk, we listen and understand. Your needs may change over the years, and we are here for the entire journey - the good days and the bad.
