Our Organisation

MND New Zealand works with people living with motor neurone disease to enable them to have the best quality of life possible.

We help people with MND access the full range of medical expertise and equipment they need, and we provide practical and emotional support. We educate and provide up-to-date information for people with MND and their whanau as well as the health professionals working with them.

MND New Zealand has a small National Office based in Auckland and seven Support Workers located nationwide.


The MND Association of New Zealand was founded in 1985 by a group of very determined volunteers who had family or friends battle this relentless disease. We are the only national charity in New Zealand focused on MND care, research and campaigning. We are an incorporated society with charitable status and are governed by the MND New Zealand National Council.

We work closely with MND Australia and we are a member of the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations and FINZ.
