Barrow Neuro DropIn Centre – “Cafe Neuro”

We started Cafe Neuro on  Thursday 9th November 2017 as a trial to bring together people living with a neurological condition.  Under the umbrella of the Cumbria Neurological Alliance various charities run the group each Thursday from 11 am to 1 pm. Check the programme here:
