Branches are an indispensable part of MND NZ. They are “the arms and legs” of the Association.
Branches bring local flavour to national initiatives, they can attract local media and person-on-the-street interest, and they are involved in local awareness and fundraising opportunities, such as street fairs. They also support their local Support Worker, and can help run local MND Connect support groups.
MND NZ currently has four active branches in Wellington, Waikato, Tauranga and Canterbury/West Coast. Our branches are always on the look-out for new volunteer members, so if you live in one of these four areas we would love to hear from you.
If you are interested in starting up a branch in a new area, then please contact the National Office. We would be absolutely delighted to help establish a new branch.
