Benefits Advice Line for those affected by MND in Northern Ireland

It can be difficult to think or talk about money or to claim benefits if you have not already done so. In partnership with Advice NI , the Association has created a free, confidential & independent telephone and e-mail benefits advice service for people with or affected by MND.


What is MND?

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones.

Degeneration of the motor neurones leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.

The effects of MND can vary enormously from person to person, from presenting symptoms, the rate and pattern of the disease progression to the length of survival time after diagnosis.
