MND Association Trustees
The MND Association’s Board of Trustees is a group of volunteers who take overall responsibility and act collectively to govern the organisation.
They are responsible for ensuring the mission and long-term aims of the Association are met. Their role is to take a national perspective to meet the needs of people affected by MND. Trustees have the ultimate legal responsibility for directing the affairs of a charity, and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and meeting the needs for which it was set up.
“The Association was always there for us when we needed them. After my partner’s death I felt I needed to be involved.” Alun Owen, Chair of Trustees

About the MND Association
The MND Association is committed to equality and diversity and we encourage expressions of interest from all communities and backgrounds. As such we particularly welcome applications from those traditionally under-represented on trustee boards.
- MND is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord
- It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles refuse to work. Sensory nerves are not usually affected
- It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breath
- It kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis
- It has no cure
The MND Association was founded in 1979. Our mission is to improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND. The Association also campaigns and raises awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.
