Where does your money go?

A lot of people ask “where does the money go that we have been fundraising for you?”

We have put together just a small list of what the volunteers at Gloucestershire MNDA Committee spend your hard earned fundraising money on. We hope this gives you peace of mind knowing that the money is going towards helping those living with MND in Gloucestershire.

The MND Association offers four types of grant:

  • MND Support Grant (Care) requires a health or social care professional assessment and must be processed by Support Services at David Niven House (DNH). Branches and groups will be contacted to ask if they wish fund this grant. Amount awarded will be subject to criteria set out in “MND Support grant Guidance” section 1.4
  • Quality of Life grant of up to £500 can be funded through the branches and groups at their discretion.
  • Young Person’s grant of up to £250 in any one year. This will normally be funded by the branch or group. If no local support is available then this will be from DNH
  • Carer’s grant of up to £500 in any one year. This will normally be funded by the branch or If no local support is available then this will be from DNH.

Both the Quality of Life and Care grants are included in the maximum possible support offered by the Association of up to £3,000 in any rolling twelve months. The Young Person’s and Carer’s grants are excluded from this total.

To best support all people affected by MND, a branch or group may be contacted to ask if they are able to provide some funds out of area where resources are limited. Any support provided or received by a branch or group will be acknowledged.
