Who we are
The MS Society is the UKs largest organisation dedicated to supporting the 100,000 people, their families and carers affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is the most common neurological disorder among young adults and is usually diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 45.
The focus of the Society is to provide support today, whilst funding vital medical research to find a cure for the future. Our key services and projects include a national freephone helpline, support for young people caring for families or relatives with MS, funding a dedicated MRI scanner for the diagnosis of MS, providing award-winning information publications, and offering welfare grants for home adaptations and wheelchairs.
