The Motor Neurone Disease Association
The MND Association was founded in 1979 by a group of volunteers with experience of living with or caring for someone with MND. Since then, we have grown significantly, with an ever-increasing community of volunteers, supporters and staff, all sharing the same goal - to support people with MND and everyone who cares for them, both now and in the future.
The MND Association
focuses on improving access to care, research and campaigning for those people
living with or affected by MND in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
SSAFA The Armed Forces Charity
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been
providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885. In
2020, our teams of volunteers and employees helped more than 79,000 people in
need, from World War Two veterans to young men and women who have served in
more recent conflicts, and their families. SSAFA understands that behind every
uniform is a person. And we are here for that person - any time they need us,
in any way they need us, for as long as they need us.
Every major military unit will on average have at least two personnel who will be diagnosed with MND in their lifetime.
