About

Who We Are & Our Philosophy

Integrated Neurological Services (INS) is a registered charity providing long-term support for people with neurological conditions and their carers.

We support people living in the London Boroughs of Hounslow and Richmond.

The philosophy of INS is to encourage self-help and independence for our clients and, by working in co-operation with statutory and other organisations, to help provide ongoing, integrated services for them and their family carers.

INS believes:

  • in a person-centred approach in all its services;
  • that personal dignity and wellbeing are paramount for every individual involved in its work – clients, carers, staff and volunteers;
  • that its services are open to all who can benefit;
  • in maintaining transparency in all its dealings.

Constitutional Aims of INS

The Constitutional Aims of INS established at its inception and remaining at the heart of the organisation are to:

  • Provide a caring, rehabilitation, maintenance and support service primarily for people with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease or who have suffered a Stroke.
  • Reduce the effects of their disabilities and improve quality of life.
  • Encourage clients to help themselves and to live as independently as possible.
  • Provide practical and emotional support to family carers.
  • Monitor each patient’s condition and measure objectively the effect of INS intervention.
  • Liaise and work with statutory and voluntary organisations to enhance the long-term care given within the community to those with neurological conditions.
  • Advance education in the support of people with neurological conditions and their carers.
  • Develop a model of good practice which could be replicated in other areas of the country.
