We fund care, campaigning and research to achieve a world free from MND

Story

The Branch is run entirely by volunteers who support people living with MND in West London and Middlesex.  We cover all the London W postcodes, as well as the TW1-14 and UB postcodes.

Motor Neurone Disease is a fatal condition that devastates lives.  It weakens and wastes the muscles, resulting in loss of mobility and speech, difficulties with swallowing and ultimately, breathing. 

There is no known cure and no alleviating treatment.  MND kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis.  It affects all communities, with a person’s lifetime risk of developing MND around 1 in 300. Today six people will be diagnosed and six will die from MND. There is no cure.

The money we raise is primarily used to give people living with MND a better quality of life - by helping with the purchase of much-needed equipment, such as communication aids, bio-bidets and stairlifts, by assisting with the costs of home modification and respite care
and by helping with transport costs. Among other things, we also contribute towards the cost of vital research into the causes and treatment of MND. The Branch supports people with MND, their carers and families through its network of fully trained Association Visitors, open meetings and a carer support group.
