Working to defeat MND

Motor Neurone Disease Australia is the national voice representing all Australians who share the vision of a world without MND.

Drawing on 35 years of experience, MND Australia works with a national network of State MND Associations to advocate, educate and raise awareness. Our goal is to empower Australians impacted by MND to live better for longer.

Until there is a cure, MND Australia’s research arm, the MND Research Institute of Australia, will promote and fund the best research with the greatest chance of making MND treatable.

MND Associations across Australia have been supporting people living with MND and their families for over 35 years. Whether you're finding out about MND for the first time; grappling with the NDIS or the Aged Care system; in search of information or peer support groups; in need of aids and equipment; or want to get involved to help raise funds for MND care and research; the MND State associations are there all the way for those impacted by MND.
