We would love you to come and join us at one of our meetings where you can meet others living with MND, their carers or their family and friends. In fact anyone who has been touched in some way by the disease is welcome to share experiences over a cup of tea or coffee in a relaxed and friendly setting.

Refreshments are provided free of charge for people living with MND and a family member or carer. Whether you are able to pop along for 10 minutes or stay for 2 hours it would be great to see you.

All meetings are at St Andrews Church Hall, Churchdown at 2.00pm unless stated otherwise. If you have difficulty reaching a venue please let one of the Visitors know so that we can arrange transport.

If you, or anyone you know, is either living with or caring for someone affected by MND, and you enjoy a chat over cake and a cup of tea in lovely surroundings, do come and join us at Great Oaks.

We meet in the lounge of Dean Forest Hospice on the 2nd Thurs of alternate months from 2-4pm to catch up with news of family and friends, share problems, and offer support to anyone newly affected by the diagnosis of MND.

Dean Forest Hospice is set in beautiful grounds-ideal to look out at and enjoy from inside or even to venture out into the garden for tea when the weather is fine.

Coming to support group at Great Oaks is also a great way to find out more about some of the complementary treatments available and meet the staff too who are always keen to pop in for a chat.
