Want to make a difference?

Volunteers play an important role in the MND Association. The West London & Middlesex Branch is looking for more volunteers to get involved, to help ensure that people with MND, their carers and their families receive the support and services they need.

Although the branch is run by a committee, you do not need to join the committee in order to volunteer. There are many tasks relating to fundraising, publicity, social media and events with which you could help. Your time commitment can be as much, or as little, as you can spare.

If you can help in any way, please do contact us. The more volunteers we have, the more support we can provide for people with MND, their carers and families.

Whatever your skills, background and age, we can find a role for you. Here are just some examples, those marked ** are urgent needs:

Join our volunteer register for ad hoc opportunities:

  • This could be helping out at collections – these are often at interesting sporting or arts events, for which you would also get a ticket – but also includes station, supermarkets and other collections.
  • Or maybe acting as a marshal at our sponsored walk.
  • Or providing food for one of our events.
  • Join our Fundraising Group or organise your own fundraising event.
  • Become an Association Visitor**.
  • To participate in campaigning.

If you are interested in volunteering for the branch, please contact our Area Support Coordinator (West London and Surrey), Lisa Burnard; or our Branch Chair, Kapish Narda.
