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. We can also 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.

The Association's Helpline offers information and support to people affected by the disease.

Area Support Co-ordinator (ASC)

ASCs provide support, information and guidance to branches and groups and individual volunteers to enable them to increase capacity and develop services locally. They run induction and development workshops, as well as bring groups of volunteers together to network and share best practice. They also develop new volunteering opportunities both for individuals and by the establishment of new groups.

ASCs also work proactively with statutory, voluntary and independent sector providers to promote and influence provision of timely and equitable access to a co-ordinated network of care for people with MND and their carers that meets our standards of care. They provide support to AVs on an individual and group basis, as well as identifying and delivering development opportunities for AVs.
