Imagine not being able to ask for the things you need … Not being able to talk with friends … Not able to tell your children that you love them? This is the reality facing people living with motor neurone disease.

That's why for our 2021 Christmas Appeal we are asking for your help to give them back their voice - you can make a big difference to the lives of people living with MND by donating here now.

As we are currently facing increasing cases of community transmission, we will try to provide you with the latest information about how you can keep yourself and your family safe, and find out what support is available.

Around 10% of people diagnosed with MND have a ‘familial’ form of the condition; meaning there are two or more affected members within their family. Most people diagnosed with MND have what is called ‘sporadic’ MND, so although there may be a genetic element involved, other family members will not be affected.
