Support the group

Welcome to the Southampton and Winchester Group

This group covers Southampton, Winchester, New Forest, and the surrounding areas with an SO postcode.

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

We currently have six Volunteer Association visitor in this area who provide check-in calls, and emails and offer Face2Face visits if required. We also facilitate two support groups which we have found are the most useful ways to support as they provide Peer-to-Peer support from others who are on a similar journey with MND.
