The branch is run entirely by volunteers and aims to provide the best possible support to local people with MND, their families, carers and those close to them. 

 

What we do:

  • We offer emotional, practical and financial support.

  • Provide a link with other vital services where needed, through our team of trained Association Visitors.

  • Hold regular meetings and other events in the area.

  • Liaise with local health and social care professionals to influence and improve services for people with MND.

  • Campaign to influence and raise awareness of the disease in the wider community.

  • Support and organise fundraising events to contribute to things that improve the quality of life for people living with MND in the South Lancs area, to pay for equipment not provided elsewhere and to help fund MNDA care and national research projects.

The Bank Of England are creating a new £50 note and the public had been asked to nominate a scientist to appear on it and our late Patron, Professor Stephen Hawking has made the list of nominees.

 

The shortlist, which includes more than 600 men and almost 200 women, includes the eminent physicist, black holes expert and the former patron of the MNDA, Professor Stephen Hawking. Professor Hawking made vast contributions to science and raised so much awareness of #MND.

Thank-you all for your nominations and fingers crossed for Professor Hawking as this would really raise an incredible amount awareness of #MND.

Motor neurone disease (MND) describes a group of diseases that affect the nerves (motor neurones) in the brain and spinal cord that tell your muscles what to do. With MND, messages from these nerves gradually stop reaching the muscles, leading them to weaken, stiffen and waste. Watch the short animation shown above for an overview about the disease, then select from the following to find out more. Our information covers health and social care in England, Wales and Northern Ireland – please contact MND Scotland if you live in Scotland.

 

If you are living with or close to someone with motor neurone disease (MND), the MNDA 'About MND' web hub is designed to help you. It also answers common questions about MND and Kennedy’s disease, including how the disease is diagnosed, and how to manage daily life, access support and find information.
