    Scrap 6 Months campaign victory!

    After three years of campaigning, we are pleased to announce that the Government has listened to the voices of terminally ill people and is set to scrap the unfair six month rule, which barred many terminally ill people from fast track access to benefits.

    This is a really positive step which, we believe, will mean that the majority of people with MND who are entitled to benefits will be able to access them using the Special Rules for Terminal Illness. This speeds up the process considerably, and reduces the amount of form filling and meetings people are subjected to.

    You can read more on our website below:
