Our impact - making a difference together

We play a leading role in research and we fight for better treatment and care. Our resources are precious. So we use them where we can make the most impact for everyone with MS.

Our work last year saw us get even closer to our vision for a world free from the effects of MS.

We reached thousands of people with help and support through our MS Helpline and grants. We successfully campaigned on the issues that matter most to our community. And we continued to invest in groundbreaking research to stop MS in its tracks.

This new trial gives me hope that simvastatin could slow down MS progression – truly groundbreaking news. It could dramatically affect how our symptoms develop and how we live our lives. MS Society ambassador Stuart has secondary progressive MS

Now that there’s a treatment available that could work for me, I finally have a glimmer of hope for the future. Anything that could help me keep my independence for longer would have a massive impact.  Zoe has primary progressive MS

I'm forever grateful to that person on the MS Helpline. It's the first time I'd been spoken to since my diagnosis like I was a human being. It was absolutely life changing.  Aleks has MS and now volunteers for our MS Hellpline

The next research breakthrough is in reach

Your donation will help stop MS.

  • Please enter an amount

    Our minimum donation is £2, please enter a different amount.

£30could process one blood sample, giving researchers crucial information about genes and the immune system.

£50could pay for an hour on a microscope, so scientists can study cells and tissue in greater detail and improve their understanding of the biology of MS.

£100could pay for half an hour of MRI use, so researchers can monitor the success of clinical trials and understand MS in more detail.

Every penny you give really does take us a step closer to stopping MS. Your donation will make a difference.

£10a month could pay for lab equipment like microscope slides to study the building blocks of MS

£20a month could pay for lab equipment like petri dishes to grow bacteria important for studying genetics

£30a month could process a blood sample to help us understand what causes MS, so we can stop it in its tracks

Your regular donation means we can keep funding world class MS research with confidence. Together we will stop MS.
