Wellington Branch

Welcome to the Wellington Branch of the Muscular Dystrophy Association

The Wellington branch of the MDA works alongside people with neuromuscular conditions and their family's from Taranaki to the Bay of Plenty through to Wellington.

The branch provides advice, support and information, networking opportunities and a range of social events. Staff and volunteers organise camps each year for members, a Christmas party and provide information at seminars and exhibitions throughout the year.

The branch relies on donations and grants and fundraises throughout the year so it can provide services and activities to its membership. Volunteering is also a vital part of the branches operating. If you would like to donate or volunteer for the Muscular Dystrophy Association please contact the Office Manager, Elizabeth McCallum email

The Muscular Dystrophy Wellington Fieldworker Service

The MDA Fieldworkers provide one on one advice, support and advocacy mainly by home visits, phone, email or specialised workshops.

The Fieldworkers understand about neuromuscular conditions and the New Zealand health and disability support systems. They can provide support letters and advocacy on behalf of members as required.

Membership of the Wellington Branch is by voluntary donation. The Wellington Branch heavily relies on all sources of funding on order to cover the costs of providing the Fieldworker Service.
