MND Scotland is the leading Scottish charity providing care and support to people affected by MND, as well as funding research into finding a cure. We campaign and raise awareness to make the lives of people affected by MND better, and provide hope for a world without MND.

What is MND?

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a rapidly progressing terminal illness, which stops signals from the brain reaching the muscles. This may cause someone to lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink or breathe unaided. There is currently no cure or effective treatment for MND and the average life expectancy from diagnosis is just 20 months. There are over 450 people in Scotland currently living with MND.

Our vision

A world without Motor Neurone Disease.

Our mission

To find a cure; deliver and transform care.

Our Principles

  • People affected by MND are at the heart of all that we do
  • We strive for those affected by MND to have equal access to services 
  • We are building a movement to defeat MND  

MND Scotland is a member of the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations.
