Welcome to Medway Neurological Network Website









Our AIM: To be the voice of all those affected by neurological conditions in Medway - a single point of access 

Our Mission: 

  • To defend and improve the quality of health and social care services available to those with neurological conditions 
  • To raise awareness of neurological conditions in Medway and the support services that are available 
  • To campaign for improved disability services and facilities 
  • To promote and support services/ therapies/ research projects aimed at improving health & wellbeing, e.g. Medway Skylarks  
Our Participants: Currently we have 13 neurological charities and support groups participating in our Network, and we are also fully engaged with 8 major service providers in Medway.  All of our participants are invited to attend our quarterly Steering Group meetings.  For a full list of our participants, and links to their websites, please see our Participants page.
