About us

The Group is run with the sole aim of serving all those in the area who are living with motor neurone disease (MND) and their carers, family and friends.

The Group also has a team of trained Association Visitors who offer a befriending role, providing support, information, and an on-going link with Association to people living with MND.

We can provide practical support in the form of liaison with health and social care professionals, such as speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, and the medical profession.

And we can provide specialist equipment to improve the quality of life of all those affected by the disease.

Fundraising and raising awareness are also very important aspects of group activities, and we organise events throughout the year which are well supported.


If you are newly diagnosed or would like to talk to someone about MND please contact MND Connect first.

MND Connect: 0808 802 6262

The Association’s Helpline offers information and support to people affected by the disease. It is available:

Monday to Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm
7.00pm – 10.30pm

MND Connect also has a confidential email facility for anyone affected by MND including Health and Social Professionals, mndconnect@mndassociation.org.
