Time Out Grant

If you are currently affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND), you may be eligible for an MND Scotland Time Out Grant.

Our Time Out Grant, supported by the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, aims to help give carers and patients a break from their usual routine.

The grant could be used to give couples or families time together, or for the carer or person with MND to have time out to themselves.

Grants of up to £1,000 may be awarded and can go towards covering the costs of things like:

  • a holiday or short trip i.e. for accommodation, travel, insurance, meals
  • regular time out to meet friends
  • pursue a hobby, such as gym sessions or driving lessons
  • or just relax.

Please note: We cannot award grants retrospectively. This includes costs that have been incurred prior to MND Scotland approving a grant application. We will review Time Out Grant applications in line with Scottish Government guidance on travel.

This grant is part-funded by the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
