Face-to-face & virtual services through which people with MS, Parkinson’s & other neuro-degenerative conditions can participate in activities tailored to their life, health needs, commitments, giving them resilience to deal with future challenges, whilst helping them recover from the impact of Covid
It ran from 12:00 PM, 30 November 2021 to 12:00 PM, 7 December 2021
Registered Charity in England and Wales (700904)
10% of UK population have a neurological condition, & this group has the lowest health-related quality of life of any long term condition. NHS options for support are limited & remain uncertain due to the pandemic. COVID restrictions have caused worsening symptoms, & increased isolation, loneliness, stress & anxiety. Many individuals remain uncertain about returning to face-to-face. Diagnosis of a neurological condition can be difficult to accept & support is sometimes hard to access.
COVID meant we developed new virtual ways to offer services; they became a lifeline & now create options to change more lives. We’ll build on learnings to create a ‘Virtual Centre Hub’ & deliver a broad, cohesive range of regular, reliable support for the future combining face-to-face & virtual exercise options, phone support & counselling, giving choice & flexibility. Awareness raising & partnerships will mean we reach more people, particularly hard to reach due to location, finance, mobility.
Thanks for all the help you give me, you are all amazing.
Thank you for the wonderful Zoom sessions, still look forward to them every week!
A great charity/centre which supports adults with any type of neurological condition. It’s local to me so means I can easily access a range of services including gym equipment, classes and physiotherapy support.
I used to visit the Centre once a week, as long as my husband’s work shifts made it possible but through the virtual services I have been able to do the exercises three times a week around my work from home. It’s amazing, and I can really feel the benefit in my strength of the extra exercise.
