John Morgan, Chair, Staffordshire Neurological Alliance explained; “We want to raise the profile of the Staffordshire Neurological Alliance and ensure that people living with neurological conditions in Staffordshire are aware of the support available to them. We want to increase the knowledge of these conditions and provide access to a network of appropriate information, support and support organisations. This should increase peer support and help reduce loneliness, social isolation and ignorance of the effects of long term progressive neurological diseases. We are very grateful to Midlands Co-operative for their donation which with help us with this goal.”
“Staffordshire Neurological Alliance’s ‘Spread the Word’ project should make a real difference to people’s lives and as a community retailer we are delighted to be able to help in this way.”
