Supporting the health and wellbeing of local people living with Multiple Sclerosis
The Centre exists to provide a range of therapy treatments, guidance and support to people affected by Multiple Sclerosis.Our aims are: To improve the quality of life of people affected by Multiple Sclerosis, to enable improved disease system management,to encourage self help and promote a positive attitude.Why the community needs us
Multiple Sclerosis is an incurable and unpredictable disease that affects the Central Nervous System. Like all chronic illnesses, the problems are both physical and emotional. The therapies we provide at the Centre include physiotherapy, oxygen therapy, foot care and counselling. These therapies are aimed at managing the physical symptoms of the illness and dealing with the emotional difficulties that come with it, therefore enabling people with MS to live more positive and independent lives.Our impact on the community
The Centre currently supports over 1,000 people with Multiple Sclerosis, as well as their families and carers, providing approximately 9,600 treatments and therapies a year. As a result people affected by MS are enjoying a better quality of life. Local people with MS are living more positive and independent lives and feel able to remain in work for longer. They also have improved mobility and feel more able to manage their fatigue and other symptoms.
Volunteers play a huge role at the Centre. We are always looking for people to volunteer at events, run our Oxygen Therapy, organise our fayres, help on reception or become one of our brilliant collectors. Get in touch today and join the team!
