What is Motor Neurone Disease?
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) stops the nerve cells that control the body’s movement from sending messages to muscles. MND is often rapid and always fatal. There is no known cure.
There are around 400 people in Scotland currently living with MND. There is currently no cure or effective treatment for MND and the average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 18 months. On average almost 200 people are diagnosed each year in Scotland.
About MND Scotland
Since MND Scotland was founded over forty years ago, we have been the front line against motor neuron disease (MND) in Scotland. We fund ground-breaking MND research and world-class clinical trials. We campaign to fix a broken system and to secure lasting change.
But much of our day-to-day work is in making time count for people with MND and the loved ones supporting them. Whether that’s helping families make memories through accessible holidays, grants to improve quality of life, or an Advocate to fight their corner and secure essential home adaptations faster, we are here to help.
When time matters most, we’re a helping hand of support, so people with MND can make precious time count with the ones they love.
