Home Getting Help Equipment Loan for MND

Equipment Loan for MND

The MND Association has a loan service that can help with a limited range of equipment where it is not readily available from a statutory source. The items that we are normally able to support people with are:


• Rise and recline armchairs
• Communication aids (including voice banking equipment)
• Portable Suction Units

Referrals for equipment loan are needed from the occupational therapist, speech and language therapist or other relevant health or social care professional.

Referrals can be made by the Referral Form to the MND Support Services Team.

The secure online form is currently unavailable

The MND Association also considers providing a support grant for financial help towards other items of equipment.

If you would like any further information about these services or would like to discuss an application for help please contact the MND Support service team please call 01604 611802, or email support.services@mndassociation.org.
