Welcome to the South Yorkshire Branch

The branch is run entirely by volunteers and aims to provide the best possible support to local people with MND, their families, and carers.

About the branch

The South Yorkshire Branch has been fundraising and raising awareness of MND in and around Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster for over 22 years.

Branch activities are very different at the moment, but please check Branch news for activities that are taking place locally.

You can get up to date information on Covid-19 and MND produced in conjunction with MND specialists.

You will also find information around the roll out of the vaccine and the different priority groups. This video series called Ask the Experts helps to answer many of the questions that people with MND have on their minds.

The branch will also continue to support people affected by MND in a number of ways. Our Association visitors will stay in touch, we will continue to provide local information and the committee will administer Emergency funding while staying at home during the coronavirus outbreak in addition to our normal Quality of Life grants, and grants for Carers and Young people. Please contact us to find out more or complete an online care referral form

Thank you to all those who support the Branch via fundraising and donations. Cheques should be made payable to MND Association South Yorkshire  and sent to our treasurer Mr P Hebblethwaite at 55 Newfield Lane Sheffield S17 3DD.

Direct payment can be made into the Branch Account no 02972378 sort code 30-96-09
