Introducing the

West Berkshire Neurological Alliance

Representing all Berkshire West people with a neurological condition.


A message to all our members and supporters

West Berkshire Neurological Alliance would like to apologise for the dearth of new information on our website and through the medium of newsletters over the course of the past few years.

Our management committee has undergone a significant number of changes during this period. Nothing untoward has occurred, and there have been no fallings out within the organisation, but people's circumstances have changed unexpectedly and new members have unfortunately found themselves unable to sustain commitments made in good faith. However, we are pleased to confirm that we now have a small but dedicated team of people who look forward to taking WBNA into a new and hopefully Covid-free era.

We can confirm that we are still actively attending national and local Health and Social Services meetings (physically or online) relating to neurological conditions, providing input and giving feedback where we can. Until recently we were awarding grants to long term carers, and have distributed over £9,000 over the past three years until our funding was inevitably disrupted by Covid. Our organisation has no financial concerns, and we expect to be playing our part in this area of healthcare for the forseeable future. Thank you for your continued support.

The WBNA Management Committee, 13th January 2021.

If you would like to support the work of West Berkshire Neurological Alliance, you can make a donation via our page on Virgin Giving.


We are a very efficiently run and financially prudent charity, staffed entirely by volunteers, and we believe that we provide services and exert influence well in excess of what could be expected from our size. However, because we are small and do not have the available resources to spend on fundraising campaigns, it can be difficult to raise even the small amounts that we need to continue our work. Any help, no matter how small, will be gratefully received, and you can be sure that the funds will be well used.
