The MND/ALS Support Group meets quarterly, and aims to provide a platform for peer-to-peer and inter-professional learning. This is run by healthcare professionals and volunteers to provide education, care and support for carers and people living with motor neuron disease, and provide a network for service provision. Each meeting includes an introductory talk, mass exercise and discussion around a pre-identified topic of interest.
