we will make time count
Our vision is a world without motor neuron disease (MND). Until that day comes, we are here to make time count for everyone affected by MND in Scotland.
Since our charity was founded over forty years ago, we have been at the front line against MND in Scotland. We fund ground-breaking MND research and world-class clinical trials. We campaign to fix a broken system and to secure lasting change.
But much of our day-to-day work is in making time count for people with MND and the loved ones supporting them.
Whether that’s helping families make memories through accessible holidays, grants to improve quality of life, or an Advocate to fight their corner and secure essential home adaptations faster, we are here to help. When time matters most, we’re a helping hand of support, so people with MND can make precious time count with the ones they love.
"Making time count is a principle that runs to the very heart of our organisation. Everything we do, and the way in which we do it, puts the MND Community at our core.”
- Rachel Maitland, MND Scotland CEO

“MND Scotland is a beacon of light for families devastated by a diagnosis of MND. I support the charity because as a family we are eternally grateful for the help we received over the years that our mum Christine had MND.”
