About Us

Welcome to the website for the Tyne and Wear local Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MND Association), an independent charity with a National Office in Northampton and over 90 local Branches and Groups nationwide. As a local Branch of MND Association we have the sole aim of serving all those in the Tyne and Wear area who are affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This includes people with MND, their carers, family and friends.

We exist to:

  • Provide support for people affected by MND
  • Raise money to help people affected by MND
  • Influence policy and decision-makers within their communities, to the benefit of people affected by MND

Our Branch is run completely by volunteers. We are always interested in hearing from people who may wish to become involved in some way; either with the running of the Branch or aiding and supporting our fund raising events.
