World Brain Day
World Brain Day takes place on July 22nd 2020. Our theme this year is COVID-19: THE Impact. On World Brain Day we aim to raise awareness of the impact of COVID-19 on people with neurological conditions and their families as well as on the neurological charities they rely on for specialist support.
Share Your Experience Of COVID-19 #ONEWORDFORCOVID
We’re asking people to tweet one word that sums up their experience of what it is like to live with a neurological condition during COVID-19 in the lead up to World Brain Day.
Show Your Support For Neurological Charities #SAVEMYCHARITY
Neurological charities have mobilised a huge response to COVID-19, developing dedicated information hubs, one to one phone support and online services. However at a time when they have never been more needed, many will struggle to keep in operation. This is because COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the fundraising they depend on to provide their services. In the lead up to World Brain Day we'll be promoting awareness of the work of neurological charities in response to COVID-19 and the impact on their fundraising and sustainability.
Nationwide Survey: The Impact Of COVID-19 On People With Neurological Conditions/Family Carers
We carried out a nationwide survey of over 600 people with neurological conditions and family carers to explore the impact of COVID-19. We will be launching the findings in the lead up to World Brain Day, exploring the implications and making recommendations.
