Neurological Alliance – Join us: back the 1 in 6

1 in 6 people in the UK live with a neurological condition but there simply isn’t the workforce or services in place to support them. Join us in calling on governments across the UK to #BackThe1in6 and set up a Neuro Taskforce to deliver real change. Sign the petition today.

In 2021/2022, we supported My Neuro Survey a UK wide survey of people living with neurological conditions.

8,500 people, including people with GBS, reported:

Delays to treatment and care can change your life. 55% of adults and 60% of children and young people living with a neurological condition experienced delays to routine appointments with specialists in the last year.

Most people with a neurological condition are unable to access the mental wellbeing support they need. 40% reported their mental wellbeing needs are not being met at all.

Finding out you have a neurological condition is scary and confusing. Receiving the right information and support can make a real difference. 2 in 10 were not given an explanation of their diagnosis. Almost 4 in 10 adults reported not being given any information at all.

This must change. Sign the petition now and share on social media
