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

Our Monthly coffee mornings are held on the third Monday of every month at Hilliers Garden Centre, Woodhouse Lane, Botley, Nr. Southampton, Hampshire, SO30 2EZ from 11:00 – 13:00 we invite people living with MND, their families, and carers to pop along for a chat and a cup of something warm and comforting... We are always happy to welcome new people to our meetings.

Our monthly group meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at Oasis Academy, Romsey Rd, Southampton SO16 8FA. The monthly group meeting is where our members come together to discuss and share information for the benefit of the group. We have an external speaker join us every month to educate us on various topics ranging from MND research to Tai Chi. We are always happy to have new members join our group! (This will be changing to a Zoom online meeting from October - March)

Dave and Alice had their walk with me fundraiser from Cowes to Gurnard and get together at the woodvale. A fantastic and special day supported by 217 people. They raised over £1500 for MNDA. I think we all agree they are a truly Inspirational couple 🧡💙 They have now raised over £3000 for the MND community.
