Support Team

MND New Zealand Support Team provides free, personalised support and advocacy for almost every person with motor neurone disease in New Zealand, from Stewart Island to Northland. They work together with people living with MND, and their families, to enable them to have the best quality of life possible.

What does a Support Team Advisor do?

Our Support Team Advisors help link their clients with the appropriate health care professionals from multi-disciplinary teams of physiotherapists, dietitians, occupational therapists, speech language therapists, and community nurses at every District Health Board in New Zealand.

Support Team Members can also act on their client’s behalf to navigate government agencies and specialist equipment services.
