FND Hope UK is part of the first and only global patient-led charity for people with Functional Neurological Disorder. Originating as a grassroots campaign, it uncovers the hidden world of FND and empowers those affected to live their best possible life.

FND is the most common condition you have never heard of. It is the second most frequent reason for a neurology outpatient appointment and more prevalent than Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease. But stigma means people wait years for diagnosis, leading to wasted, expensive medical visits, worsening symptoms and distress. 

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is a problem with the functioning of the nervous system and how the brain and body send and receive signals. This causes a range of neurological symptoms such as seizures, weakness, paralysis and chronic pain. 

Your donations helps by:

The financial support helps us to continue in our mission to promote awareness, support affected individuals and advance research for the prevention, treatment and recovery of Functional Neurological Disorder and makes it possible for our organisation to exist and to really fulfil our objectives of:

  • Raising awareness and understanding of Functional Neurological Disorder
  • Coordinating a voluntary FND patients register to assist Doctors in the advancement of new and ongoing research
  • Working with Medical and Allied Health professionals to provide a better understanding of FND, improve medical protocols and promote ethical standards. 

We use your donations to:

  • Run FND peer support groups so they can meet others in smiliar situations which helps reduce isolation and stigma
  • Creation and distribution of our FND Patient Booklet which provides information on Functional Neurological Disorder
  • Raise awareness either through Parliament, the European Neuro Convention

We are 100% volunteer led Charity
