Support for more people who are vulnerable due to their long term neurological condition; through new on-line services, the ‘NTC Virtual Centre’ will reach new groups of individuals who are isolated either because of their new diagnosis or due to physical, financial &/or technological barriers.
It ran from 12:00 PM, 1 December 2020 to 12:00 PM, 8 December 2020

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.
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.
Just wanted to say thank you for these virtual sessions keeping us active and seeing your friendly faces .
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!
Thank you for the wonderful virtual classes on zoom, I am enjoying the exercise classes and coffee mornings, it is a real lifeline. Thank you so much for everything you are all doing behind the scenes for us. Thank you.
I am really enjoying the virtual exercise sessions, thank you to everyone at the Neuro Therapy Centre for all your hard work, support & dedication it's very much appreciated.
