Our strategy

Our work is guided by our strategy. It sets out what should be better if you’re living with MS in the UK, and how we’re going to get there.

Every MS story is unique

Everyone living with MS, their family and friends has a unique MS story. We listened to your stories. We asked what was most important to people. We looked back at our 2015 to 2019 strategy to see where we’d tackled those things. And where we still have work to do.

We want a world free from the effects of MS. And we have a bold, ambitious plan to help get us there.

At its core are the MS stories of the 130,000 people living with MS in the UK, and their carers, family and friends.

Our three long-term goals

Working to find effective treatments and prevent MS

Our values are at the heart of how we work

The stories that drive everything we do

I don’t think of myself as a carer, I just get on with everyday life. Sometimes I just want to sit down, but I’m up again.

Because it’s invisible it’s very hard to explain. Even the closest people to you don’t always understand.

I never know if I’m going to wake up tomorrow and not be able to use my legs or my arms.
