Our vision is to transform the lives of the millions of people affected by brain and neurological disorders. We do this by driving world-class innovation at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and the UCL Institute of Neurology – jointly known as Queen Square. Together these institutions lead the world in the treatment and care of patients with neurological and neuromuscular conditions.

The charity was set up in 1984, and in that time has provided nearly £48million for innovative charitable projects at The National Hospital and Queen Square Institute of Neurology. This funding has helped to drive pioneering clinical research, access to the latest technology to provide expert diagnosis and, of course, the training of tomorrow’s leading scientists and clinicians. Some of the projects we’ve recently funded include the creation of a pioneering, high-intensity rehabilitation programme for patients with aphasia; an acute interventional neuroradiology service for stroke; and, a clinical trial to find new treatments and increase survival rates for patients with glioblastoma – one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer. You can read more about these projects and our other fundraising campaigns here.
