As an Association we are committed to doing everything we can to support people with MND, their families and carers. Nationally and locally we need to raise awareness and ensure that everyone diagnosed is aware of us and the services that we and other organisations provide.
Raising awareness locally of your branch/group and what you and the Association can offer is key to ensuring that people affected get referred to us and go on to receive the vital information and support they will need.
There are many ways your branch/group can raise awareness and most can be incorporated into the activities and events you do, or through the contacts you have.
• through a branch/group leaflet, which can be given out to local HSCPs/GPs/ care providers to ensure they are aware of you and can pass accurate information on
• giving short talks to local community or business groups which may encourage more sponsors and donors to give their time and/or money
• articles in the branch/group newsletter, webpage or social media page giving information on the work being done locally to help people living with MND.
