Charity of the year

As part of The Logistics Partnership, Forward Prospects is delighted to join our sister companies in the launch of a Charity of the Year support scheme, kicking off this year with The Neuro Foundation.

Founded in 1981 as The Neurofibromatosis Association before becoming a registered charity in 1982, it was set up by families who were affected in some way by the condition to provide support and information to all those people touched by neurofibromatosis (NF) who were suffering more as a result of the lack of awareness out there. They now run with a small team from their office in London and are dedicated to helping raise support and awareness throughout the UK, whilst helping families and professionals affected. You can find out more about the condition here.

The work done and supported by The Neuro Foundation includes

  • Funding support for a team of advisors who specialise in NF to help provide support in homes / schools / hospitals helping patients, families and teachers with their understanding
  • Provide practical and emotional support both in person and over the phone to those who need it
  • Support research into prevention and treatments
  • Looking to raise awareness of the condition and the challenges associated
  • Linking families and professionals together
  • Social media – linking people and spreading awareness
  • Funding and running a helpline for affected patients and families.

One of our associated companies within The Logistics Partnership, MVP Search & Selection, worked closely with The Neuro Foundation as part of their 30th Birthday celebrations. We are delighted to be able to continue and expand upon this support as a group, and look forward to announcing some events and further details soon!
