About MS

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving hope to people affected by the disease.

MS Support Groups

A portion of our fundraised pounds go towards MS support groups across the country. The groups are there to help those living with MS, their carers and their families, providing exercise classes to reduce symptoms, home modifications, mobility grants to maintain independence and social events.

University of Bristol

For the last two years we have helped fund research carried out by Dr Alistair Wilkins at the University of Bristol. The MS Society have decided reducing the uncertainty around MS progression is one of their top priorities and so the project is to see if cerebrospinal KIF levels can predict MS progression? The researchers want to develop a new way of measuring nerve damage which could lead to better predicting how someone's MS could progress.
