"The Brightwell is a charity that supports people living with neurological conditions, their families and carers.
The West of England MS Therapy Centre is the main charity under The Brightwell umbrella. It was established over 37 years ago, to provide therapies to people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It was originally in Nailsea and then moved to its new location in Bradley Stoke, in 2012.
Although the focus of the Brightwell is to support those living with chronic neurological conditions, over the years, people with other health issues, including cancer and sporting injuries, have come to the centre for support, predominantly for oxygen therapy.
The people who use our Centre also have other conditions include Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Motor Neuron Disease (MND), Parkinson’s, Stroke and Fibromyalgia, more recently those suffering from Long Covid have also been benefiting from oxygen therapy and the Charity’s support.
The Centre, located in Wheatfield Drive, was officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal and since then has supported thousands of Service Users along with their families and carers.
2022 has seen extensive improvements and developments to the facility. Doro Pasantes, CEO said “One of our most exciting developments is, that after extensive fundraising, we now have our own oxygen generation plant. This ensures that we produce the purest oxygen for optimum therapy results, plus we can now guarantee supply as its production is on-site!”
“By the of this year we will be opening our doors to welcome Service Users, friends, and community supporters to enjoy a coffee, lunch or a snack in our newly refurbished cafe which is incredibly exciting.”
