We are delighted to announce that we have received a grant of £30,000 to contribute towards the running of the Neuro Therapy Centre over the next year from the Garfield Weston Foundation.

The foundation was established in 1958, and is a family-founded grant-maker that gives money to support a wide variety of charities across the UK. The Foundation’s funding comes from an endowment of shares in the Weston family business – a successful model that still exists today. The Weston family have a consistent aim. The more successful the family businesses, the more money the Foundation can donate.

Each year the Foundation gives away its income and donations have continued to grow. Since it was established it has donated over £1.4 billion, of which over half has been given away in the past ten years. In the most recent financial year the Foundation gave away nearly £90 million to over 1,980 charities across the UK.

The funding will be supporting the Centre as it continues to develop, with more than twenty new people accessing therapies each month and demand continuing to grow. One in ten people in the UK has a neurological condition that the Neuro Therapy Centre can support.

The Centre supports people across Cheshire, Wirral and North Wales, with a focus on offering a range of therapies to support a wide range of neurological conditions including MS, Parkinson’s, ME, Ataxia and Fibromyalgia.

The Centre takes a preventive and rehabilitative approach to managing conditions, bridging the gap between the NHS and the individual post diagnosis. The opportunity to receive regular tailored physical and emotional support makes a life-changing difference to people with neurological conditions.

“We’d like to thank the Garfield Weston Foundation for their generous support, which will helps us to continue to offer our services which improve the quality of life for those affected by neurological conditions,” said Jane Johnston-Cree, CEO at the Neuro Therapy Centre. “We have some lots of plans in action which will grow our services including introducing new therapies, continuing our virtual services that we started during the pandemic, and expanding out opening hours. Receiving important funding like this helps us to support more people to offer them a future after diagnosis.”

“I wanted to find help and advice specific to my condition. I hadn’t been able to find support and was starting to believe nothing like the Neuro Therapy Centre existed nearby. Once I found the centre a few years ago, I couldn’t stop attending classes.”


“I have noticed a difference in my husband’s muscle wastage. The Neuro Therapy Centre has managed to maintain his muscle mass and strength at a rate which would have been impossible without their support.”
