Louise Hughes: MNDA Area Support Coordinator

Louise Hughes is our Area Support Co-ordinator (ASC) covering all of Northern Ireland. It’s Louise’s role to ensure that people with MND, their families and carers receive the information and support they need from the MND Association. To do this, Louise leads our team of Association Visitors (AVs) – a group of trained volunteers who provide direct one-to-one support – and works closely with our Northern Ireland Branch to organise support activities and provide grants to people with and affected by MND. To ensure that our support is properly integrated with the care people receive Louise also works closely with the Northern Ireland MND Care Network, the MND Specialist Nurses and with many multi-disciplinary Health and Social Care Professionals across Northern Ireland.
