Neuro is an association focusing on neurology. We want to make life easier for everyone who lives with a neurological diagnosis. Our goal is for people who live with neurological diagnoses to have the same opportunities, rights and responsibilities as everyone else.
Focus of our work
We raise money for research and rehabilitation and point out the areas where we think more resources are required.
The money that we receive to run our operations comes in the form of donations, grants, membership fees and bequests. Neuro’s operations are concentrated on three general areas where we judge that we can do the most good:
- Advice and support for members, via diagnosis support, legal aid, education and talks.
- Support for our local associations, in the form of courses, conferences, system support, communication channels and information material.
- Various ways of shaping opinion and influencing decision-makers, including creating reports, surveys and consultation responses, lobbying politicians and writing debate articles.
What do we want to achieve?
We want to help increase knowledge among decision-makers and the general public about neurological diagnoses and the reality of living with a chronic diagnosis. We want to lobby decision-makers about the need for equal and improved neurological health care and opportunities for rehabilitation nationwide. Through fundraising campaigns, we want to help finance research and activities for our members.
How Neuro works
Neuro is a member of various collaborative organisations and networks, in Sweden and internationally, where we combine forces to steer social development, neurological health care and rehabilitation in a direction that benefits everyone living with a neurological diagnosis.

Rehabilitation is about restoring and retaining abilities. Through rehabilitation, individuals can train up those abilities and functions that have the ability to be trained. These can be physical as well as behavioural, cognitive and psychological skills.
