Motor Neurone Disease Association
The MND Association was founded in 1979. Our mission is to improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND.
ABOUT US: 

The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on MND care, research and campaigning. We are a membership organisation with nearly 8,000 members forming a powerful national and local network that provides information and support alongside fighting for improved services. We now have over 3,000 active volunteers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and around 170 paid staff, all dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by MND, now and in the future.

WHY OUR WORK MATTERS: 

MND is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. It attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles refuse to work. It can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breath. It kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis, and it has no cure.

We are here to support people living with and affected by MND through our volunteers, our branhces, staff, our helpline and training prograame for health and social care professionals.
