CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH MND AND THEIR CARERS
Please see the web hub on the MND Association website.
Information is reviewed daily and updated as appropriate.
Support meetings and coffee mornings are temporarily on hold.
A new Suffolk-focused community service has been set up to support people who need help during the COVID-19 pandemic. Called ‘Home But Not Alone’, the service has been launched to help connect people who want to volunteer in their communities with neighbours who are most in need. The service will mean willing volunteers, charities, town and parish councils, community and religious groups can all log their details and offers of support on an app, while people who need help can phone to request support.
