Support from The Brain Charity over Christmas

From all of us at The Brain Charity, Happy Holidays.

We hope you are able to have a peaceful festive season if you are celebrating, and are thinking of everyone who may be finding the Christmas period difficult.

It has been a year of huge change and growth at The Brain Charity. We are wishing our clients, volunteers and supporters all the best for 2023.

Opening hours

The Brain Charity will close at 5pm on December 23rd.

Our centre will be open from 9am until 5pm on Wednesday, December 28th, Thursday December 29th and Friday December 30th.

During these days, The Brain Food Café will not be open, but a reduced staff team will be available to speak to in the centre.

We will then reopen for 2023 at 9am on Tuesday, January 3rd.
