The Motor Neurone Disease Association ( M.N.D.Association ) is a charitable organisation that aims to bring together all people concerned with MND - people with the disease, their carers, and professionals. Its funds are used to support research into the disease and its management, and support the care of people with MND. They do this by providing information and advice to people with MND, their carers, and to professionals involved in their care, and by offering equipment on loan in cases where this is not available from local statutory services.

This is a part of the MND Association who raise funds to support research into the disease and to support local people with MND.

They organise regular support meetings in a friendly, informal setting that patients, families, and carers can attend. It also includes Association visitors who are volunteers that are aware how MND can affect people and offer regular contact and personal support. Chrissie Batts attends both the group meetings and support meetings.
