Sponsor one of The Brain Charity’s events

An introduction to The Brain Charity

The Brain Charity helps people with all forms of neurological condition to lead longer, healthier, happier lives.

There are more than 600 different conditions affecting the brain, spine and nervous system – from well-known ones like stroke, dementia and brain injury to many much rarer ones too. In total, they affect 1 in 6 people.

We are the only national charity providing practical help, emotional support and social activities for every single one – helping people pick up the pieces so they can rebuild their lives. Find out more about The Brain Charity’s services here.

Events at The Brain Charity

Every year The Brain Charity runs events to bring our community together and support the 1 in 6 people living with neurological conditions.

Our events range from information days, social get-togethers for people affected by neurological conditions and fundraisers to raise much-needed funds for the 1 in 6 people with neurological conditions.

These take place in The Brain Charity’s centre in Liverpool, virtually online and across Merseyside and in external venues and are extremely popular, regularly drawing in hundreds of attendees.

Whether an adrenaline-fuelled challenge, a chance to find out more about how The Brain Charity can help or a glittering black tie ball – there is something for everyone.
