About the organisation
MND Victoria is dedicated to providing the best possible support for people living with motor neurone disease (MND). ‘People living with MND’ includes people who have been diagnosed, families, carers, former carers, friends, workmates, service providers and any other person whose life is, or has been, affected by MND.
MND Victoria was formed in 1981 by a group of volunteers with the strong involvement of people with MND, their families, health professional and other concerned people to address the absence of a coordinated response to MND. It is a state-wide not-for-profit organisation, predominately self- funded situated in Canterbury in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. There are currently 31 staff and approximately 130 committed volunteers.
Services and supports to people living with MND or some other unrepresented neurological diseases, that cause disability, are delivered at no cost to the client. They are coordinated and provided through MND Victoria Support Services. MND Victoria’s work is supported by an extensive network of volunteers that underpin all organisational activities. Volunteers are a vital part of MND Victoria and work across most program areas.
