We are delighted to announce that we have received funding from the Steve Morgan Foundation to support our counselling services.
Being diagnosed with a neurological condition can be a frightening and bewildering experience; counselling can help someone come to terms with their diagnosis, feel better about their future and learn self-management techniques which will have a positive impact on a person’s life. Counselling provides a safe space to talk about concerns and worries away from a family member or carer allowing the person to talk freely without fear of upsetting anyone.
The funding granted by the Steve Morgan Foundation will provide over £36,000 over 3 years for a Counselling Coordinator to manage the counselling service as well as provide counselling to clients and young people.
Nanette Mellor, Chief Executive Officer at The Brain Charity says, “We are so grateful to have received support from The Morgan Foundation to enable us to run such a vital service. There are so many people affected by these life-changing conditions and having the space and time to talk about what they are going through is incredibly important.”
Ashley Lewis, Trustee of the Steve Morgan Foundation, says, “Access to NHS counselling is becoming increasingly difficult and so support offered by The Brain Charity is much needed. We were delighted to be able to help such a worthwhile service that makes a real difference to people’s lives.”
