Advisory Groups

The ABN advisory groups were devised in 2010 to assist with responding to consultations and other documents as council see fit. Comprised entirely of ABN members, the advisory groups are divided into key neurological areas, with a Chair and typically up to ten advisory group members.

The advisory groups run on two year tenure, with applications invited in the Autumn of 2017. If you would like to find out more information about the ABN advisory group election process, please email the office.

The ABN advisory groups are as follows. Please click on the links to find out more about each advisory group and its members.
