Could you be a Carers’ Champion?

Carers’ Champions are volunteers helping to provide information about support for carers and past carers of people with MND in their local area.

Carers’ Champions also:

  • Build up knowledge of the support available for carers in their community
  • Liaise with carers to identify what issues they face
  • Explain how the MND Association can support them
  • Help identify and create opportunities to bring new, existing and past carers together.

To find out more about becoming a Carers’ Champion visit the page on the MND Association website or request an application form contact the Volunteering Team on 0345 6044 150 or

Upcoming Support Group Meetings

Each month there are support meetings across the region where people with MND, their carers, friends and family can get together.  The meetings are informal and are good place to share advice and experience.

There are currently three Support Group meetings in the area – Bristol, Bath, and Weston-super-Mare. The dates, times and venues are listed on our events page.

Please contact Neil Drinkwater for more info and to let him know if you are thinking of coming. He can also arrange transport too. Email Neil: or call 07831 349398.
