National MS support groups
We work with several national support groups for people with MS in the UK.
Asian MS is a national support group for Asian people with MS, their carers, friends and family. They exist to raise awareness and dispel ignorance of MS in the Asian community, and put fun and dignity back into the lives of Asians affected by MS.
They provide a telephone support service for Asians affected by MS, information in different languages and run the 'Asian MS' online forum.
Mutual Support (Armed Forces)
Mutual Support exists for serving and ex-serving members of the Armed Forces and Reserves, their dependants and carers affected by MS.
It is run by volunteers with direct experience of MS and the Armed Forces and provides confidential support, information and advice.
Shane project (African/ Caribbean)
The Shane Project is a charity based in Edmonton and surrounding areas of London.
It was founded in April 2002 by Norma McFarlane when her two sons were diagnosed with MS. The charity is named after Shane, her eldest son who was diagnosed with primary progressive in 1993 but sadly passed away in December 2003.
JEMS is a relaxed, social and confidential group for Jewish people and their partners, who are affected by multiple sclerosis. It meets on the first Wednesday of every month in Edgware at 8pm.
