MND New Zealand works with people living with motor neurone disease to enable them to have the best quality of life possible.
We help people with MND access the full range of medical expertise and equipment they need, and we provide practical and emotional support. We educate and provide up-to-date information for people with MND and their whanau as well as the health professionals working with them.
The more informed the health professionals, the more co-ordinated the care. The more empowered the family, the better the outcome and quality of life for those involved.
MND New Zealand supports people living with motor neurone disease, their families, carers and the health professionals who work with them.

The MND Association of New Zealand was founded in 1985 by a group of very determined volunteers who had family or friends battle this relentless disease.
We are the only national charity in New Zealand focused on MND care, research and campaigning.
