Motor neurone disease (MND) Charter
Newport City Council has agreed to adopt the motor neurone disease (MND) Charter in support of local people and their carers living with this terminal disease.
MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing disease that can leave people locked in a failing body, unable to move, talk and eventually breathe.
It kills around a third of people within a year of diagnosis, and more than half within two years, there is no cure.
MND is still little understood which can mean that many people with the disease do not receive the care and support they need.
Read the MND Charter (pdf), which was launched to change this.
Visit the MND website for further information.
