Organisation Information

At the MS Society we put people living with multiple sclerosis at the heart of everything we do. Our vision is a world free from the effects of MS and our goal is to one day find a cure.

But until then, we'll keep doing all we can to enable people living with MS to live their lives knowing they don't have to face MS alone. We have big aspirations and we need passionate people to help us achieve our ambitious goals.

The local group is run by a small, friendly team of volunteers who all have experience of MS. We provide a range of information, activities, services and support to meet the needs of those affected by MS locally. We also do our best to have some fun!
