Support Groups

The Motor Neurone Disease Association of WA (MNDAWA) organises a range of different support groups and events throughout the year.  Some are monthly gatherings and others are bi-annual or annual events.  MNDAWA’s support groups and events enable people living with MND and their families to feel connected, guided and supported through their journey with MND.  The different groups and events are listed below.  Please note that some of the monthly functions are planned on weekends occasionally and dates are advertised well in advance.  For more information please contact the office on 6457 7355 or email admin@mndawa.asn.au.
