The IMNDA is very disappointed not to receive funding this year from Pobal for the Association Visitor Programme.
We were relying on this funding to continue this programme as it performs a vital role in supporting those affected with Motor Neurone Disease across Ireland. It is very comforting to have someone available locally that can give you advice and support. This can help to reduce the sense of isolation that some people affected by this disease can experience. We will now struggle to continue to fund this vital programme. I know that other charities are facing a similar fate. As it stands we only receive 14% government funding and this is continually being cut, people cannot continue to suffer”.
