- Strengthening the voice of the people you represent and stretching your own resources further through working on shared issues such as mental health, rehabilitation, early diagnosis, access to specialists and rare disease
- Promoting your events, publications and news through our newsletter, website, social media and policy networks.
- Networking with your neuro chief executive and policy peers through member meetings and subgroups
Senior managers from full or affiliate member organisations can also stand as a Trustee and shape the strategic direction of the Neurological Alliance.
“Like many members of The Neurological Alliance, my organisation is small. We are dedicated to helping people with a rare neurological condition but without The Alliance would struggle to have a voice in the policy process. The Alliance make it easy for me to ensure the views of the people I represent are included in policy making.”
Caroline Morrice, Chief Executive, Guillain-Barré & Associated Inflammatory Neuropathies (GAIN)
“For us, The Neurological Alliance acts as an extension of our in-house policy function, enabling us to stretch our policy resource further. Policy makers often prefer to work with one overarching organisation rather than many different stakeholders. Through The Alliance we get invited to meetings with senior decision makers that we otherwise would not hear about, despite our size as a charity. Working in coalition strengthens the voice of our respective organisations when speaking independently and collectively.”
