Living with multiple sclerosis (MS) can be isolating enough, but in these uncertain times, those people who were already feeling lonely or isolated, or struggling with their mental health need us now more than ever. We have seen a significant demand in calls to the MS-UK Helpline and the number of referrals to our counselling service indicating that our support is very much needed. Our staff are all working remotely to ensure these services are available to those who need them and it is the generosity of those that truly understand what life with MS is like, that keeps our essential work going.
When COVID-19 hit and lockdown began MS-UK saw events cancelled and much of its fundraising dry up overnight. We estimate a loss of £300,000 in income as direct result of COVID-19 and as a result have launched this emergency appeal. We pride ourselves on being a small national charity dedicated to supporting people affected by MS to live happier and healthier lives, but it is through those fundraising events and donations that we are able to run our services.
Please donate to ensure that we are here to continue to support people living with MS in the future. No one should have to face MS alone.
