Our mission, vision and values

Migraine is the most common neurological disorder in the UK affecting 1 in 7 people. It is one of the most disabling lifetime conditions and causes 190,000 attacks every day. Yet migraine is one of the most misunderstood and underfunded medical conditions in modern medicine.

Sadly migraine is often trivialised – it does not attract the sympathy or attributed seriousness as comparable conditions. Many individuals struggle for years to manage their migraine and the enormous burden it can have on work, family and social lives.

The Migraine Trust is working to change this.
