Improving the health and well-being
of people living in East Yorkshire
and Northern Lincolnshire

 

At their March 2017 meeting, the Help for Health Trustees granted £5,000 to help the Motor Neurone Disease Association ensure that that people in East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire with Motor Neurone Disease have access to equipment to improve quality of life, as well as improve emotional well-being.  This is organised through the Equipment Loan and Support Grant Service.

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a rapidly progressive disease, which attacks the nerves that control movement so muscles no longer work, leaving people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breathe.  In the UK, six people per day are diagnosed with MND.  It also kills six people per day; this is just under 2,200 per year.
