We need your help

We’re crowdfunding to help improve the mental health of people living with multiple sclerosis (MS).

In 2017, we launched the only national telephone counselling for people with MS, and have delivered more than 2,000 sessions to more than 300 people. But with your donation, we can help even more people who are living with MS improve their mental health by providing video counselling. Our crowdfunding campaign is now live, click here to support us! https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/ms-uk-counselling

Video counselling

We want to run a six-month trial of video counselling to help people with MS live happier, healthier lives. The MS community told us that while they find our telephone counselling very helpful, for some people, being able to talk to their counsellor would be even more beneficial as they would be able to maintain eye contact and read body language.

Here’s just some of the feedback we’ve had from people who have accessed our counselling service:

‘Counselling has helped me realise that it is okay to share my fears and worries with my partner. Being able to do this with you first really helped.’

This is an all-or-nothing campaign. If we don’t reach our target, we get nothing, your pledge will be refunded by Crowdfunder and this pilot will be delayed. It's a risky move but it's the best way to prove we have your support.
