Geographical remit: 


Functional neurological disorder is a disorder of the nervous system, where signals to and from the brain are not sent or received properly. FND can affect anyone at any age. 

Due to the nature of the South West a lot of people suffer from isolation and depression, we as a support group offers meet-ups in villages, towns and cities across the south-west. We also have an office in Bradley stoke Bristol which doubles up as a drop-in centre. We also offer craft days on a Tuesday, as well as meet-ups and socials we also offer home visits to those unable to get out. FND is a very debilitating and disabling disorder where most sufferers either use walking aids, wheelchairs or are housebound. We are the only support group in the whole of the south-west, there is no aftercare within the National Health Service, and we are their only support.


We hold regular fundraisers; we also are applying for grants for running costs for the purchase of a minibus, and other projects we are working on. We currently have 8 volunteers which involve working admin jobs and also we have befrienders that go out and attend meet-ups.
