Why join us?
We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. We are the membership body representing England’s leading neurological organisations.
Through membership, you gain access to a network of other neurological charities.
Our knowledge of changes and trends in policy helps members plan ahead and develop appropriate strategies. We actively encourage interaction with our membership through our policy work and projects. As well as this, we gather our members’ views through consultation and value opinions that our members have on any of our work.
As a member, you will also have access to up-to-date information through our website and e-bulletins.
We represent our members on a wide range of public and other bodies important in the development of health and social care policy.
We are able to cover the broad issues raised in Parliament, with the newly forming NHS Commissioning Board and relevant Government Departments and with other policy making bodies. This means that while you concentrate on the issues that are specific to your own supporters, your broader interests are also being represented in key political debates that will affect the services and information your supporters receive.
We also provide the secretariat for the Neurology National Leadership Group, and act as a focal point for members to numerous consultations and surveys, either responding for the sector or guiding individual charities in their response.
We seek to raise awareness of neurological conditions, and improve the quality of services and information available to patients and families. We are often asked to meetings with members of Parliament, Government Departments, other policy making bodies and professional bodies.
We will also work with our members to develop information materials and tools for service users, carers and professionals.
