Motor Neurone Disease Association
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.
Plymouth and District Support Group:
The Plymouth Group of the Motor Neurone Disease Association was launched in February 2019. We support people in and around the Plymouth area who have been affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Whether that be people who suffer with the condition themselves, or carers, family members and friends.
The group is entirely run by volunteers and we are always on the look out for new members. If you would like to get involved please contact Jo Campbell by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0345 375 1839. You can also like them on Facebook or visit their JustGiving page.
Aims of the Plymouth Group:
- Improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers in and around the Plymouth area.
- Support the MND Association in promoting and funding research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND.
- Campaign and raise awareness in and around the Plymouth area so the needs of people with MND and everyone who cares for them are recognised and addressed by wider society.
