The Motor Neurone Disease Assosciation is a national charity supporting people with the disease as well as being involved in research.
Coronavirus update 14/4/2020
Having taken advice from neurologists and specialists working in our care network, it is clear that people with MND fall into the group for whom coronavirus could be particularly dangerous. Our priority as an Association is to do what we can to reduce the chances of spreading the virus.
With that in mind all MND Association branch and group meetings, get togethers and all events between now and the end of April have been postponed, as have Association organised events. This date will be reviewed regularly in accordance with government guidelines - we expect to have to extend it. Staff and volunteers are using technology – phone calls, email, Facetime and Skype for example - to support people with MND and their carers rather than meeting face to face.
Our teams will be working hard to ensure that everyone who needs and wants support will continue to receive it.
Other aspects of the Association’s work will continue as usual with the aim of keeping any impact on people affected by MND to a minimum.
