Our multi-disciplinary team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and social workers are clinical specialists, working with people with neurological conditions and their family carers.

  • We offer ongoing rehabilitation through therapy and education, together with practical self-help techniques and solutions which can help to maintain independence for as long as possible.
  • Support can be provided in a small group or on a 1:1 basis and is offered for as long as is needed.
  • We have been providing long term support in the community for people with neurological conditions and their carers since 1993.
