Neurological Conditions

Neurological conditions can affect children, adults and older people. We fund projects that empower people to lead better lives and be involved in their communities. We are aware of the importance of wider support networks and are interested in services that also support carers and families.

Particular attention is given to lower incidence conditions and neglected groups, and programmes that address limited service provision in rural and remote areas. We are also keen to support those services that meet needs across multiple conditions.

Funding is also available for medical research into neurological conditions.
