MORE ABOUT MND SCOTLAND

The charity provides a specialist MND Care Team and an Equipment Loan Service to make sure people affected by MND receive the best standards of care from health and social services. It also offers a well designed Information Service with resources for the MND community and

professionals. To help health and social care professionals improve their understanding of the illness, for the benefit of clients, an Education Service organises events such as Study Days, and it also reaches out to people affected by the illness with events such as Family Information Evenings for people newly diagnosed with MND. There is a developing network of Local Support Groups, allowing people in similar circumstances caused by the disease to share time together in a relaxed atmosphere. The
charity’s Welfare and Benefits Service is proving to be highly successful in helping people affected by the illness to gain appropriate financial support from the state. As you can imagine, being diagnosed with MND, or being a partner, family member, carer, or someone bereaved by the illness can be hard to cope with, so MND Scotland’s Counselling Service has been valuable for many people facing the trying emotional consequences of Motor Neurone Disease.

MND Scotland spends over one million pounds every year to maintain its range of services and this is largely funded by generous fundraisers, donors, and trusts. The charity has come a long way since it began in 1981 but still faces an illness that is incurable and fatal. Over 400 people in Scotland have MND, and the average life expectancy is 14 months after diagnosis. People with MND can suffer from paralysis, loss of speech, difficulties eating and drinking, and it sometimes affects their breathing. Although it is currently not curable, we remain optimistic that we will one day live in a world without MND. We are part of the global research effort to find a cure, and in the meantime will continue to work hard to help people affected by Motor Neurone Disease to maintain the best quality of life possible.
