About us

The Nottinghamshire Branch of the association is a group of like minded individuals who volunteer to provide support and information for individuals and families who have been affected by Motor Neurone Disease.
Many of the volunteers have personal experience of the disease and whether you are a person living with the disease, a carer or family member, we can help you get the most out of life.

MND is an incurable condition that paralyses the muscles, leaving people unable to do the everyday things the rest of us take for granted. Walking, talking and swallowing may become virtually impossible, yet the mind and senses are rarely affected. Click here here for more information.

Our branch liaises with health and social care professionals such as Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and the Medical Profession. Our Branch holds regular Open Meetings at the Mapperley Plains Social Club, Nottingham for people living with MND, their family and carers. These provide an opportunity to meet with other people living with the disease, and to share experiences and ideas.

We provide information, advice and support in the following ways.

  • Monthly 'Second Thursday' Meetings - These provide an opportunity for individuals and families to meet and share their experience and knowledge with each other
  • An Association Visitor - Who will stay in regular contact with you, supporting and signposting you to other services
  • Funding specialist equipment and services to meet your needs
  • Quarterly local newsletters
  • A regularly updated website to keep you up to date with the latest news and events
  • We have excellent links with the MND Care Centre based an the Queens Medical Centre
  • Fundraising - We organise various fund raising events which can be fun, but also help to raise awareness of this disease
