Websites and social media
More and more people now use the internet as their first port of call for researching information. We are therefore actively working to increase our network of branch and group websites in order that anyone wanting to know more about MND, the local support that is available, or even how they can get involved and contribute in some way can find the information at any time of day convenient to them.
Websites provide an opportunity to publicise your branch or group to a wide audience, most of who will have specifically searched for local information.
Social media is increasingly becoming part of our everyday lives and is the number one reason we use the internet. For many people, more than a quarter of the time spent online is spent checking and updating social media profiles.
Using social media increases your presence on the web, giving people more ways of finding out about your branch or group.
We have a range of guidance to help you develop an online and/ or social media presence.
