Support people with MS

No one should have to face MS alone. Could you join our MS Helpline, online forum and local group support volunteers to be there for everyone affected by MS?

Support volunteers help with all sorts of things, from providing emotional support to helping people find local services and information to live well with their MS.

Could you volunteer some time to be there for someone, online, face to face, or over the phone?

Making sure no one has to face MS alone

I love to feel I’m helping someone, sometimes just by listening to them, other times by exploring options. It’s rewarding to know someone is feeling just that little bit better after they’ve spoken to you. Kate, MS Helpline volunteer
