The Migraine Trust is the UK’s leading migraine charity, there for the 10 million people living with migraine. We provide, information and support, campaign for awareness and change to reduce the inequity surrounding migraine as well as funding and promoting research.
With one in seven people in the UK live with migraine, we see on a daily basis how this complex and debilitating neurological disorder significantly affects so many aspects of their lives, from work, school, and personal relationships, and feelings of isolation. We have been leading and bringing the migraine community together to change this since 1965.
People look to the charity for the most up to date information and every year over two million people visit our website and thousands contact our helplines for information and support on all aspects of migraine and for help in managing it at work, in education, and in accessing healthcare.
We campaign for increased awareness and understanding of migraine, better access to treatment, and national policy change to improve the lives of people who get it. We aim to improve our impact and influence.
We have funded over 140 medical research projects and hold an international symposium every two years to bring together the world’s leading experts on migraine as well as providing an opportunity for the general public to hear the latest news about research from around the world.
You will be joining a small and dedicated team at an exciting time due to recent breakthroughs in migraine research and treatment, and a charity that is looking to grow and ambitious to increase its impact.
