Opening of The Brainkind Neurological Centre in York

York Professionals were out in force at the recent official opening of The Brainkind Neurological Centre in York. Board Directors Dale Bartleson, Kelly Dunn and Administrator Jo Pickering were delighted to attend the event which showcased the new 40-bed specialist brain injury hospital.

With thanks to Irene Sobowale, Chief Executive, Tracy Calcraft, Head of Fundraising and Dr Miles Rogish, Consultant Clinical Psychologist at Brainkind for the kind invitation.

Located on the site of the old Terry's Chocolate Factory in York, this state of the art facility offers cutting-edge support to people with brain injuries from Yorkshire and across the UK. The Brainkind team offer compassionate, specialised person-centred care on-site through a multidisciplinary team, led by psychiatrists and neuropsychologists.

Fundraising income is an important part of Brainkind's funding model and the team are active members of York Professionals, keen to meet and network with key businesses in the city. If you are interested in fundraising and partnership opportunities, please reach out in the first instance to Tracy Calcraft or Richard Barwick. Email or ring 01904 412666.
