The MS Society community is there for everyone living with MS – to provide practical help today, and hope for a cure tomorrow.
They play a leading role in research and fight for better treatment and care. There resources are precious. They use them where they can make the most impact for everyone with MS.
The MS Society are excited to co-fund the final phase of a clinical trial to test simvastatin (a drug used to lower cholesterol) can help people with secondary progressive MS. It could be among the first long awaited treatments licensed for this type of MS.
The MS Society campaign community have been fighting to make welfare make sense, with 23,000 signatures on our MS Enough petition. And last October the government finally announced that people with severe, life-long conditions would no longer have to face reassessments to receive Employment and Support Allowance.
The MS Helpline responded to over 18,000 enquiries last year, the most they haveever responded to in a single year.
Over 270 volunteer-led groups provided support, friendship and services to more than 13,000 people across the UK.
