Our Trust Partners
We are extremely grateful to all the charitable trusts and foundations who support our work.
Thank you for your continuing generosity which is making a real difference to the lives of people with MND.
We would particularly like to thank the following trusts who have made a substantial contribution to our work.
The Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation is supporting the development of the MND Register – a database to capture information about everyone with MND in the UK which will support research into the disease.
The Garfield Weston Foundation has supported a number of research projects. The most recent grant is towards MIROCALS which is investigating the drug interleukin-2 as a potential treatment for MND.
The J P Moulton Charitable Foundation is supporting our MIROCALS research project which is investigating the drug interleukin-2 as a potential treatment for MND.
The Ian Karten Charitable Trust supported us with the purchase of specialist communication aids to loan to people with MND, as well as equipment to enable people with MND to undertake voicebanking.
The Masonic Charitable Foundation is supporting a PhD studentship which is focusing on RNA dysfunction in MND and aims to understand more about the two mutant MND-causing proteins TDP-43 and FUS
The William Brake Charitable Trust has supported a variety of projects over many years, most recently with a grant towards a research project looking at the electrical activity of nerve cells.
For people living with MND every donation offers hope. Hope that their voices will continue to be heard and their individual needs recognised by society. Hope that standards of care will continue to improve and that they are able to access the support they need whenever they need it. Hope that one day a cure will be found.
