Black Country Neurological Alliance
Neurological conditions are disorders of the brain, spinal cord or nerves. They can have a range of causes including genetic factors, traumatic injury and infection. The causes of some of these conditions are still not well understood.
There are a large number of neurological conditions, some very common and some are comparatively rare.
The Black Country Neurological Alliance (BCNA) is an umbrella organisation, led by people who are affected directly or indirectly by a neurological condition. We are part of the Neurological Alliance (www.neural.org.uk) but are focussed on the people of the Black Country, bringing them closer to services available from both statutory and voluntary bodies.
Our vision is that any person affected by a neurological condition, living in the Black Country, will have access to all the resources and support they need to enable them to live an active and fulfilled life. Chairman Peter Cornell says,
“Our aim is to promote a better understanding of neurological conditions through the provision of information, by sign posting to support services and influencing local decision makers in order to increase the opportunities for individuals to make informed choices that will enhance their quality of life.”
We support all four boroughs, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton, holding various events in each region.
