The Merseyside Branch covers the county of Merseyside and Wirral although there is occasionally an overlap with other Branches at our boundaries. To view details of other MND Association Branches in other areas, please visit the National Office website at www.mndassociation.org or contact National Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01604 250505.
The Merseyside Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association has the sole aim of serving all those people in the area affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This includes people with MND, their carers, family and friends.
MND is an incurable condition that paralyses the muscles leaving people unable to do everyday things the rest of us take for granted. Walking talking and swallowing become virtually impossible, yet the mind and senses remain intact.
Specific Branch Objectives
Our Branch is aiming to hold regular support meetings for people living with MND and their carers. These will 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 Branch activities, and we organize several events throughout the year which are well supported.
Merseyside Branch is completely run by volunteers. We are always interested in hearing from people who can help with events or who want to get involved with running the Branch.
For information about the work of the Association, and up to date information regarding the disease, care and research, please visit the National Office website at www.mndassociation.org.
The Branch holds regular Branch meetings. At present our venue is the Holiday Inn Express, Knowsley. Our meetings are very informal and offer a chance to catch up with other members old and new! There is no need to confirm attendance just turn up! At some meetings we do have speakers.
Please see our Branch Meetings page for further information.
The branch now have two new patrons, Stephen Twigg, MP for West Derby, and Sir Bill Connor (ex president of USDAW). The branch look forward to working with them in the future.
We are pleased to welcome Donna Young as the new MND Associations Regional Fundraiser.
Donna will be covering the Merseyside area and will be responsible for 16 branches in total and individual fundraisers too. We hope to work closely with her in the future as we complete our much anticipated 30 events! #30430
Donna will visit the Branch on Wednesday 14th August during our regular meetings.
