  • With my walking (round and round the garden, now) morning stretches and weights I thought I would sail through, but as I might more realistically have expected you found quite a few of my unexercised muscles. It does work well with Zoom, and has the benefit of cutting out the 35 mile round trip!

Situation

10% of UK population have a neurological condition. Many are in Gov’s Vulnerable Group & have self-isolated since lockdown began & will continue to until Gov guidance changes or a vaccine is found, resulting in isolation, loneliness, stress, anxiety. NHS provision focuses on diagnosis & acute exacerbations, with little in between. Since COVID-19 all NTC services have been delivered virtually using technology & feedback shows they are a lifeline to our 450+ members. But know we could reach more.

Solution

Networking to cascade ‘Virtual Centre’ information to health, social-care bodies, local/regional voluntary groups and to identify hard-to-reach / isolated individuals. Development of a structured programme for the newly diagnosed or people still in work. More resources to enable increased delivery of on-line exercise classes. Targeted telephone support & counselling. Marketing & comms, incl website, newsletters & social media, to raise awareness of services & facilitate participation.
