About The Brain Charity
Why we’re needed
Our most precious memories, hidden dreams and the thousands of subtle differences that make us who we are, are all housed in one amazing, unique and fascinating place.
The human brain is the most complex structure in the universe, and the most important part of who we are. It runs our whole world, moves our body, makes our decisions and even tells us when to smile.
Unfortunately, the brain is fragile and easily damaged – the effects of which can be devastating.
For someone newly diagnosed with a neurological condition, life can quickly become very lonely and frightening. People lose control of their lives and many face unemployment, poverty and social isolation.
At The Brain Charity, we help anyone affected by a neurological condition to pick up the pieces so they can rebuild their lives and achieve their potential.
