MND Association membership is one of the best ways you can help in the fight against MND, while getting the support you need too.
It’s membership, your way. Whether you are looking for advice and information, or you want to share your story or skills to help others, you can join a supportive community that’s together for the good days – and the bad ones.
As a member you’ll be alongside others, each working together towards a common goal and having your voices heard. You’ll also be the first to know whenever we take steps forward. You’ll receive our regular Thumb Print magazine, and you’ll have the chance to get involved in exclusive membership events too.
Not only that, by choosing to pay for your membership, you’ll help more people living with MND to get the support they need. You’ll help increase knowledge and understanding of MND nationwide. And you’ll help make sure research can one day find a cure.
However you want to contribute in the fight against MND, membership is a brilliant way to start.
- An opportunity to influence the work of the Association
- A welcome pack, including membership card.

In line with recent government guidelines, there are currently limited staff in the office to limit the spread of Covid-19. This means there will be a delay in postal communications, including welcome packs.
About your membership
When we talk about our membership, we are referring to those individuals who have signed up to be members of the MND Association.
We want to give all our members the chance to get more closely involved in your Association’s work, using their skills and experience to raise awareness, help strengthen our voice and encourage others to get involved in the fight against MND.
When you become a member of the Association, we will connect you with your local branch or group. To find your nearest, just type in your postcode on the website here www.mndassociation.org/find-support.
Our branches and groups are local networks of volunteers who meet together to fundraise, campaign and to provide support to local people living with and affected by MND.
We are very sorry to hear this. Please call us on 01604 611860 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
