MS-UK is a national charity formed in 1993. We are here for people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) – that’s around 130,000 people in the UK or one in 500, with about 130 people diagnosed every week on average. It is thought that there are around 2.3 million people living with MS worldwide. MS-UK is here for anyone affected by multiple sclerosis, to empower them to live healthier and happier lives by improving the understanding of MS and providing support where it is needed most. We put people affected by MS at the heart of our work. Our team are dedicated with a passion for making a difference. We pride ourselves on offering independent, unbiased information and support so people with MS can make their own choices. We cannot achieve our objectives without the vital support of our volunteers.
