What We Do

The Branch supports people throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland who are affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND), whether they are a person living with the disease, a carer, family member, friend or colleague. For details of MND Association Branches and Groups in other areas, please contact the MND Association National Office.
