Norfolk, Norwich and Waveney Branch




The Association has a dedicated website page providing regularly updated information on Coronavirus and MND, and answers to frequently asked questions.


The Association has a priority to do what it can to reduce the chances of spreading the coronavirus. From 17 May face-to-face volunteering can resume so long as government guidance and safe behaviours are followed. We will continue to offer telephone and online support where this feels more comfortable for volunteers and those receiving support.


The new guidance also enables up to 30 people to meet outside and six people to meet inside. As long as these numbers are not exceeded, and guidance and safe behaviours are followed, branches and group meetings can take place. However, for everyone’s safety and comfort, we are asked to consider meeting virtually or outside wherever possible and practical. Should there be any further changes to government or MND Association guidance we will post a further update.


You can find more information about the support available to you on our Useful Links page. The page includes information about the Association’s Connect Helpline, and contact details and links to the support available from Norfolk County Council’s adult social care services.

The Norfolk, Norwich and Waveney Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association has the sole aim of serving all those in the area who are affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This includes people with MND, their carers, family and friends, in fact anyone who has been touched in some way by the disease.


We work closely with the Norfolk MND Care and Research Network and, where possible, liaise with health and social care professionals such as Speech and Language Therapists (SaLT), Occupational Therapists (this includes Wheelchair Services) and Neurological Nurses. As the need arises we are able to request support from a voluntary Care Services Navigator.
