Myaware is the name for the Myasthenia Gravis Association. MGA has been around since May 1976. We support people with myasthenia and their families, increase public and medical awareness of the condition and raise funds for research and support staff. Members of myaware can access our free benefits and counselling services.

If you’ve just been diagnosed with myasthenia, you’ve come to the right place. Our aim is to make your life easier. We provide information, advice and support. Call us now or join myaware online. You will have free access to our resource centre which includes advice on everything from the latest medical developments and treatments to how to negotiate the benefits system. You can also get in touch with other members who understand what you are going through.


People help Myaware in all sorts of ways. We have volunteers all over the country who spread the word about myasthenia. They distribute leaflets to doctors’ surgeries and hospitals, hold coffee mornings, shake tins, raise cash. Our committee members work tirelessly to ensure the people with myasthenia in their area get the support and face to face meetings they need.

You might just like to support us by joining our online community and becoming part of our network. This will give you access to all of our events, including our national conference.

And of course, you might like to make a donation to Myaware. Your money will help fund research, myasthenia specialist nurses in hospitals, care for people living with myasthenia across the UK and Ireland and will allow us to continue lobbying government and the NHS in your area to improve services for people with myasthenia and raising awareness locally and nationally.

We get no Government support for our work and rely entirely on voluntary fundraising.
