The Brain Charity Scoops MBE for Voluntary Sector Groups

The Brain Charity has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

This is the highest award given to voluntary sector groups in the UK and we are immensely proud to be one of just four organisations on Merseyside to have been honoured this year.

The Brain Charity is the only national organisation in the UK which offers support across the spectrum of neurological conditions, such as attention deficit disorder, dementia and strokes, rather than just focusing on one condition.

Since opening its doors, the charity has helped thousands of people across the U.K., providing them with advice, education and support on their conditions.

Chief Executive Officer of The Brain Charity, Nanette Mellor, was invited down to Buckingham Palace to celebrate the achievement.

Nanette said:

“I would like to thank our selfless volunteers because none of this would be possible without them. We have an amazing group that work alongside our dedicated staff to deliver a range of services and activities tailor-made to improve the quality of people’s lives on a daily basis.”

• There will be a ceremony to celebrate the award at The Brain Charity in Liverpool with the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside, Dame Lorna Muirhead, on Monday 4th September at 1pm.
