MND Association, Cornwall Branch
Home Future events Contact us




The Cornwall Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association has the sole aim of serving all those in the county who are affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This includes people with MND, their carers, family and friends, in fact anyone who has been touched in some way by the 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 may become virtually impossible, yet the mind and senses remain mainly intact.


We liaise with health and social care professionals such as Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and the medical profession.


Our branch holds regular support meetings and lunches 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 branch activities, and we organise several events throughout the year which are well supported.


The Cornwall 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.
