Membership milestone for the MND Association
We are delighted to announce that the Association now has more than 10,000 members, that is people who define themselves as belonging to our movement.
The Association began as a membership organisation back in 1979 when a group of families affected by MND came together for the first time. With little information, co-ordinated care or support available they felt ‘isolated’ and ‘helpless’.
By joining together and dedicating time and hard work, those founding members created a charity which now provides that information, co-ordinated care and support to thousands of people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Having reached this milestone, we are now preparing a new look membership offering.
The Association’s Director of Engagement Chris Wade said:
“Having 10,000 voices in our corner makes us stronger than ever. And we’re keen to grow those numbers further and to offer members the chance to engage more through new opportunities to take part in a range of activities.”
