About Us

The MND Association was founded in 1979. Our mission is to improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND. The Association also campaigns and raises awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.

  • MND is a fatal, rapidly progressive disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.

  • It attacks the nerves that control movement: people can still think and feel but their muscles refuse to work.

  • Six people die from MND every day in the UK. It has no cure.

Important Notices

Please submit your application as soon as possible; due to the high volumes of applications we receive, and we reserve the right to close any adverts before the closing date once we have received sufficient applications.

Please note, from late 2019, our National Office will be relocating to new premises within Northampton.

At the MND Association we are committed to equalities and value diversity. We are working hard to remove perceived and actual barriers to participation by people with and affected by MND, current and future staff and volunteers and stakeholders.
