Welcome to the Black Country Neurological Alliance
The Black Country Neurological Alliance (BCNA) is an umbrella organisation, led by people who are affected directly or indirectly by a neurological condition.
The Alliance aims to bring the people of the Black Country closer to services available from both statutory and voluntary bodies within the region.
Our vision is that any person affected by a neurological condition, living in the Black Country, will have access to all the resources and support they need to enable them to live an active and fulfilled life.
Chairman Peter Cornell says, "Our aim is to promote a better understanding of neurological conditions through the provision of information, by sign posting to support services and influencing local decision makers in order to increase the opportunities for individuals to make informed choices that will enhance their quality of life."
We support all four boroughs, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton, holding various roadshows in each region.
If you would like to get in touch, please email us at email@example.com.

New for 2017 - Exciting News
Date for your Diary - 3rd April!
Keep the date free for our first Question Time Forum, in Dudley on Monday 3rd April. Click here for more info
Neurological Forum: Meet the Decision Makers – the first of our new Forums will be in late March in a fantastic venue in Dudley, which we have checked out carefully to meet our requirements for suitability. Our venues have to have good access, plenty of disabled parking space, easy access to adapted toilets as well as a great atmosphere. It's a tough ask, but we think we've found it. Five Experts have been invited to form our Panel; they'll have a few minutes to tell you what they do, and then it's over to you – to put your questions to them. Details will be on our website soon!
Recruitment opportunities: Neuro Supporters
Do you know what it's like to live with a neurological or neuromuscular condition? Could you be a Neurological Supporter? These are people who are trained to listen to service users and to ensure that any feedback they hear, whether good or bad, is made known to the BCNA so that relevant issues can be taken to the service providers. Please click here (poster) and here (leaflet) for more information.
