Advocacy

Campaigning on your behalf

The IMNDA is committed to raising awareness and campaigning on issues and services for over 300 Irish people living with Motor Neurone Disease in Ireland. We are members of organisations such as the International Alliance of ALS/ MND, NAI – Neurological Alliance of Ireland and DFI – Disability Federation of Ireland who help us to campaign on issues that affect you.

Your experiences and those of others living with MND mean that we have first-hand knowledge of the reality of the disease.  We use this knowledge to speak out on your behalf and influence decision-makers at local and national level.  This ranges from communicating with the HSE and the Social and Voluntary sector in Dail Eireann, to ensuring that you are able to claim the allowances to which you are entitled.

The national IMNDA office produces a newsletter and organises an annual general meeting where people affected by MND offer each other emotional and practical support and exchange information.  Local fundraising events and activities also take place.

To find out more about the IMNDA and how we can help you, or to get your issues heard contact us by emailing info@imnda.ie  or Freefone 1800 403 403.
