You may have seen the PMs announcement last night updating measures in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19). You can find the latest information here. Please take note of the changes regarding self-isolation.
For the first time, multiple sclerosis (MS) is listed as one of the long term health conditions where people are considered to be especially vulnerable. You can find their information about social distancing here.
Due to these measures, whilst some staff are working from home, our national services are continuing to operate unless you hear from us otherwise.
If you need information or emotional support please call the MS-UK Helpline free on 0800 783 0518. The Helpline team have also produced a coronavirus frequently asked questions blog, which you can read by clicking here.

We are taking all the required precautions at our Essex-based wellness centre, Josephs Court. Many of our clients have currently decided that they still wish to attend and therefore, we have taken the decision to cancel our social activities but remain open for people with MS to exercise at this time.
Please continue to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, as well as our website www.ms-uk.org for further coronavirus information and charity updates.
I wish you all well during this challenging time.
Amy Woolf, CEO of MS-UK
