Support Group Meetings

We have smaller support groups for people living with MND and their carers. There are currently five groups:

  • The 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: 19 December.
  • 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: 16 December.
  • 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: TBC
  • 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: TBC
  • 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.
    Next meetings: 12th December at 5pm (UK time).

For the time being, all meetings will continue to be held on Zoom. Contact Lisa Burnard for details on how to join the meetings, or for further information.

We also hold Open Meetings that offer the chance to meet people with MND, their carers and families, as well as others whose lives are impacted by the disease.
