Multiple Sclerosis Society Bournemouth Branch
Who we are
We are a Centre for local people affected by Multiple Sclerosis, based in West Parley, accommodating members from Wimborne, Verwood, Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole, covering an area in excess of 200 square miles.
We have 6 specially adapted buses that pick up members and bring them into the Centre, where we provide support, advice, craft work, hair dressing, physiotherapy and freshly cooked lunches for all local people with MS.
The Centre is open 3 days a week and around 70 people with MS visit each day. An army of volunteers help run the centre, without whom the centre wouldn’t exist.
Fully self funded the centre needs approximately £170,000 a year to function and is one of the largest MS centres in the country.
