In response to this year’s snap general election, MND Scotland has produced a Manifesto for People Affected by MND. It highlights issues reserved to Westminster, and calls for parties and candidates to commit to:
We have sent the manifesto to the main party HQs for consideration in their own manifesto development but we need your help.
This General Election manifesto follows the council elections, which took place across Scotland on 4th May. Prior to those elections, we launched our council elections MND Manifesto, using the views and experiences of people with MND, their families and carers to highlight the key issues they face living with MND every day. We have had a positive response to the manifesto which helped raise awareness of MND and ensured candidates understood how they can support constituents affected by MND, if elected.
Shortly afterwards, a snap General Election was announced by the Prime Minister, due to take place on 8th June. In response, we swiftly produced another manifesto highlighting key issues for people with MND reserved to Westminster such as UK research and, currently, welfare benefits.
