Local support

Up and down the country, our local groups are on hand to provide friendship, support and information about MS. We also run research information days and events where you can learn more about living well with MS.

Local support during the coronavirus outbreak

Alhough our local groups can't meet face-to-face right now, some have taken their catch ups, support service, coffee mornings and exercise classes online or by telephone.

Please bear in mind that our local groups are run by volunteers and they may not be able to provide support at this time. If you need emotional support and information, our MS Helpline is here for you on 0808 800 8000 or email

Events moving online

We’ve had to pause our local research and information events. But you can join our interactive webinars to get information on a range of topics. You can also join a virtual wellbeing or time to chat session and connect with other people living with MS from across the UK.
