The MND Association

The Derbyshire Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association held it's inaugural meeting on the 22 October 1986. The Branch was established with the sole aim of serving all those in the area who are affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This includes people with MND, their carers, family and friends.

The Derbyshire Branch of the MND Association became the Derbyshire MND Support Group at an Extraordinary General Meeting held on Wednesday 22 January. 2014. However our aim remains the same, to serve all those in the area who are affected by Motor Neurone Disease

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 become virtually impossible, yet the mind and senses remain intact.

We also liaise with health and Social Care Professionals such as Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and the Medical Profession.

If you are wondering which way to turn because you,  or someone near and dear to you, has recently been diagnosed with the condition - our Group is hear to help and advise. Please click on Contacts for more information.

Our Group holds regular support meetings for people living with MND and their carers. These provide an opportunity to meet with other people living with the disease, and to share experiences and ideas.
Fundraising and raising awareness are also very important aspects of our Group activities, and we organise several
events throughout the year which are well supported.

Derbyshire MND Support Group is completely run by
volunteers. We are always interested in hearing from people who can help and want to get involved with our group activities.
