Why we need your help

The Foundation is based at the Department of Neuroscience in Preston, which serves a population of approximately 2 million people in the Health Districts of Preston, Chorley, South Ribble, Blackpool, Blackburn, Burnley, Lancaster and South Cumbria. Each year the Department cares for more than 2000 inpatients and more than 5000 outpatients.

T 5 1

We have achieved a great deal in the treatment of; Head injuries, brain and spinal tumours, strokes, cerebral haemorrage, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and Parkinson’s disease.

The cost of providing this excellent service is enormous.

Sadly, there is very little available from Government or State funding to spend on Education and Research.

If the Department is to continue its pioneering work at the frontiers of the Neurosciences, it must maintain and expand its research and training facilities.
