Welcome to the Bristol and Bath Group

The Bristol and Bath Group aim to support local people affected by motor neurone disease.

Each month there are support meetings where people with MND, their carers, friends and family can get together.  The meetings are informal and are good place to share advice and experience.

We also help by providing financial assistance for equipment, care and quality of life interventions for people with MND and their families.
