    Do you have a coronavirus experience to tell?

    We are keen to gather coronavirus related stories from people affected by MND to be used across our work streams to raise awareness, highlight issues and identify service gaps.

    Do you have a coronavirus experience to tell?

    That might be:
    - A particular challenge which could become a campaign – along similar lines to our ‘extremely vulnerable’ campaign.
    - A life change as a result of the pandemic / lockdown
    - Particularly effective care and support – or a lack of: this could be anything from gaining new skills in tech to being the recipient of organised community support
    - Good or bad, positive or negative, solved or unsolvable
    - Something you’ve done to improve your lockdown experience, or a new way you’ve found to cope

    We’re looking for people living with MND, or those close to them who would be willing to do one or more of the following:
    - Have their story used for campaigning purposes
    - Be included in impact reporting on the pandemic and the Association’s work
    - Be interviewed by the media
    - Share their story in Association publications on and offline
    - Speak to decision-makers
    - Share their story with Association partners to help build up a ‘bigger picture’

    In some instances this could involve something as simple as approving a quote to be used; in others it might be being asked to give a television or radio interview; and everything in between!

    If you’d like to find out more about sharing your story – with no obligation – please drop an email to [email protected] and the team will be in touch.
    Our working hours are Monday to Friday 8:30am until 5pm
