For people living with MND, these are dark times

Will you support families affected by MND during the cost-of-living crisis?

Rising costs are affecting us all, but the cost-of-living crisis is having a devastating impact on people living with MND.

For many people, living with motor neurone disease day-to-day is hard enough. But now more and more families are worried about affording their next meal, or whether they can pay their heating bills. This simply isn't right.

People living with MND shouldn't be in a situation where they have to choose between heating or eating. Will you help provide support to families who are facing this impossible decision?

We're seeing a huge increase in demand from people living with MND, their carers, and families for our support grants, especially our Cost of Living Support Fund. This fund is to help those struggling to pay for household bills or food shopping, and it can take such a huge weight off someone's mind at a really tough time.

People living with MND simply shouldn't have to worry about affording basic necessities. It's unacceptable, it's unfair - but your kind support can help people through these dark times.

Will you make a donation today to provide vital support to families already dealing with so much?

Thank you for your continued support

Kind donations from our supporters mean we have been able to provide vital financial help to families affected by MND. Here are just some of the ways we have helped:
