Campaigning regionally

Our work at local and regional levels

We need to work together to make the local case for better service. Regional Neurological Alliances (RNAs) bring together service users and carers, as well as staff and volunteers from the brain and spine charities and a range of health professionals to campaign for better services.

What is a Regional Neurological Alliance?

RNAs are groups for all those in an area who share a commitment to improving services for people with a neurological condition. They are independent organisations, so they decide their own workplan, but they all share the same vision and objectives as the national Neurological Alliance. Some RNAs cover large geographical areas, such as the whole of greater Manchester for example; others cover a much smaller area.

Members of a RNA will typically include service users and carers, and staff and volunteers from member organisations of the Neurological Alliance.
