Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

The Brain Charity – Telephone Befriending

Phone befriending service for people with a neurological condition.

Our 1-2-1 befriending calls are for anyone who has a neurological condition & needs informal support.

Our volunteers make weekly calls from their homes and are able to speak with clients from all over the UK.

Calls can last for up to an hour at a time with some taking place over video platforms if requested.

Our phone befrienders can also show anyone who can’t access, or isn’t confident with, apps such as Zoom how to use these so they can access our online social activities too. 


If you’d like to volunteer as a phone befriender, email ⠀
