We hold quarterly Open Meeting's. Everyone is welcome - whether you are living with MND, or are a carer, family member or friend of someone with MND, please do come along. The dates and venues for our forthcoming meetings will be announced soon.
We have five support groups for people living with MND and their carers:
- The North, North West and West London Support Group
A monthly support group offering an opportunity for those living with MND and their carers to share their thoughts, have a friendly chat, and seek support. These meetings take place from 11am to 12 noon.
Next Meetings: 1 March.
- Recently diagnosed with MND
If you or a loved one have been recently diagnosed with MND you are welcome to join our online group at 2pm on the third Friday of every month. It is an opportunity to meet people in the same position, ask questions and find out about available support. The meeting covers London, Essex, Surrey & Kent.
Next meetings: 17 Feb, 17 Mar, 21 Apr, 19 May.
- The London Carers Group
Join us for a virtual cuppa and friendly chat with those who care for people living with MND. There is a WhatsApp group which adds further opportunities to stay in touch. These meetings take place on the first Tuesday of the month at 11am.
Next meetings: 7 Feb, 7 Mar, 4 Apr, 2 May.
- The Evening Online Carers Group
Meetings take place on the last Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm. It’s proving very popular with carers who find it hard to meet up during the day.
Next meetings: 22 Feb, 29 Mar, 26 Apr, 31 May.
- PMA-PLS Support Group
Progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) and primary lateral sclerosis (PLS) are specific forms of MND and this group focuses on the particular needs of those living with or affected by the condition. It is an international group. We meet on the second Monday of each month at 5pm (UK time).
Next meetings: 13 Feb, 13 Mar.
For the time being, all meetings will continue to be held on Zoom. Contact Alli Anthony for details on how to join the meetings, or for further information.
