Help your local community

Across the UK, our 270 local groups play a vital part in supporting people affected by MS. And they're all run by volunteers, people like you.

They provide sense of belonging, unity and friendship. And they deliver services and support for local MS communities.

For many people with MS, their local group meetings are a lifeline, an opportunity to meet up, have a coffee with people who know MS, find out the latest research news, or even do some yoga.

Whatever your skills, there's an opportunity for you to get involved and make a real difference for your local MS community. Will you sign up to do something amazing today?
