The first World Compassionate Communities Day was celebrated on 1 November 2022 in recognition of the Compassionate Communities movement. The movement promotes death and dying, loss and care as everyone’s responsibility.  

National Carers Week runs from Sunday 16 to Saturday 22 October 2022 with the theme – Millions of Reasons to Care.

Millions of Reasons to Care, aims to broaden the communities understanding of the caring role, increase carer identification and provide the community with more reasons to care about carers.

On 14 October 2022 we celebrate International Allied Health Professions Day.

MND NSW celebrates the 200,000+ allied health professionals working across Australia and would like to extend a very special - thank you - to all allied health workers supporting people living with MND.

MND NSW in partnership with Carers NSW, are offering young carers free movie tickets to celebrate National Carers Week.

National Carers Week runs from 16 - 22 October 2022 and is a time to recognise and celebrate the 2.65 million Australians who provide care and support to a family member or friend, including the many young people who take on this important role.

If you are aged under 25yrs and supporting a loved one living with MND, we want you to take a friend to a movie of your choosing during National Carers Week.

There are many worldwide collaborative research projects searching for new and effective treatments for MND and this includes clinical trials. It is important to remember that clinical trials are not treatments, they are scientific experiments to test out potential new treatments.

This program is designed to help support people with disability to participate in community events and activities by making it easy for a companion to join them.
