Support Groups

Whether you have MND, or are a current carer or family member, you are welcome to join us in a social setting to exchange information and provide support to one another.

MND Scotland’s support groups bring together people affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Our meetings are informal and give people a chance to have a chat over a cup of tea. We encourage people to talk to each other and share tips and experiences.

We will occasionally have guest speakers who will deliver talks on subjects which might be of interest to the group.

The groups are free to attend and we meet on a bi-monthly basis for light refreshments in the following areas:

  • Aberdeenshire
  • Ayrshire
  • Dumfries
  • Edinburgh & Lothian
  • Forth Valley
  • Fife
  • Glasgow
  • Highland
  • Inverclyde
  • Lanarkshire
  • Tayside

At every session we will have either an MND Scotland staff member or an MND Scotland volunteer who will make you feel welcome and introduce you to the rest of the group.

“Being able to meet and discuss the illness with others directly involved is very helpful. It brings home that the disease affects everyone differently. There is encouragement to keep going, tips on how to cope with difficulties and reminders that you can get help if necessary.”
