Benefits Advice

A diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) can bring additional expenses and we can help you apply for the benefits you are entitled to.

This may seem overwhelming but our team can help you apply for the funds you are entitled to. If you don’t know what you are entitled to claim, or if you are unsure if you are receiving the right benefits, then they can help with this too.

Additional costs may include hospital visits; turning up the heating at home because you are less mobile; or replacing household items for others that are more accessible for you.

This confidential service is offered at a convenient time for you, either by phone or email, or our Welfare and Benefits Officers may be able to visit you at home.

For more information please get in touch with your MND Clinical Specialist or contact us directly.
