Coronavirus: How to get Help

Find coronavirus help in your local area from the UK Government.

The Brain Charity can also help anyone with a neurological condition, their family and carers at this time.

If you need help, please get in touch: Email The Brain Charity or call us free on 0800 008 6417 (Monday-Friday: 9am-4.30pm)

Coronavirus: All centre-based group activities organised and run by the The Brain Charity will cease until further notice. And now: Our coffee mornings have moved online! They are on the first and third Monday of the month. Please contact us if you want to join in.

Lots of groups meet at The Brain Charity, as you can see below. Support groups offer a way for people affected by a condition to share experiences and gain an understanding of how a condition can affect others. Support groups are a great way of meeting new people and learning new coping strategies to help through illness to recovery.

It can be daunting to join a new group at first but everybody in that group will understand how it feels to be the new person so you can be sure of a warm welcome.

Join us in our café, meet new friends and old.
