Work with us

We’re here to make time count for people living with motor neuron disease (MND) across Scotland. If you’re looking to join a passionate, collaborative and supportive team, working to make life easier for people living with this terminal illness, and share our drive to find a cure, MND Scotland could be the place for you.

Who we are

Since MND Scotland was founded over forty years ago, we have been at the front line against motor neuron disease (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 living with this terminal illness. 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. Read more about our story and our values.

Volunteer with us

Can you spare some time to volunteer and help us make time count for people with MND?

Volunteers play a vital role in helping us raise awareness and funds; driving our vision of a world without MND. 

We have a variety of opportunities throughout the year for volunteers to get involved and the more volunteers we have the more we can do to support people with MND in Scotland.  

Get in touch via email to learn more about upcoming opportunities and how you can get involved.
