Story

The group is run entirely by volunteers and aims to provide the best possible support to local people with MND, their families, and carers.

Our Group supports those living with MND be providing grants to help them with much needed equipment or adaptations to their property, to help them maintain social interaction through the provision of technological devices or communication aids, or enable them to access community resources through help with taxi fares and train tickets to visit family members. We also provide grants to help improve quality of life and these vary from support to go fishing to a trip to a concert or the theatre.  

We also support those affected by MND, particularly carers who provide much needed support, so that they get a few hours of relaxation and pampered, whether through a spa day or getting their hair done. We also help to minimise the affects of MND upon children through the provision of our children and young persons grants and these might be used for dance lessons or a holiday. 

Our Group also funds our local Association Visitors who provide a valuable befriending service and emotional support to those needing someone to talk with, in addition to our monthly Support Meetings which allow vital and supportive interactions for our local MND community.
