This year we were honoured to be the official Yulefest charity partner at Couldon’s Christmas festival.
The 3rd International Conference on Functional Neurological Disorders took place in Edinburgh this month, and we were delighted to have the opportunity to attend, not only to hear research development from world leaders in clinical research and connect with many medical professionals and researchers, but to more importantly be there to represent those diagnosed with Functional Neurological Disorders in the UK.
We were delighted to announce membership to the Neurological Alliance as a National Organisation, and now be part of the only collective voice of organisations working together to make life better for millions of people in England with a neurological condition.
We welcomed our new Medical Advisory Board. The Board has been established to support all the work of our charity, made up of leading specialists, researchers and healthcare professionals who dedicate their time and expertise to improve the lives of people who are diagnosed with Functional Neurological Disorders. We look forward to working further with the Board.
We launched a new Facebook peer support page, as an additional space for men diagnosed with a Functional Neurological Disorder and/or Non Epileptic Attack Disorder, and for men who care for someone diagnosed. See our Facebook Support groups page for other groups we have available, and details of other groups that may be set up in your area.

We interviewed 2 leading specialists, ran an awareness campaign, shared stories and articles .. and more.

We were delighted to be given the opportunity to become part of the Medway Neurological Network and work along side amazing worthwhile charities, to come together and be one voice for all those affected by Neurological conditions in the area and beyond. We look forward to working with the network and will keep you updated on our future work.
