Grants for people with MS

Sometimes grants are available to help cover costs. Some local MS Society groups offer grants. Or you might find financial support from other sources. For example, grants through social care, or from charities and unions linked to the kind of work you’ve done, or where you live.  

MS Society national grants paused

Unfortunately, we've had to pause our national grants programme. So we can no longer accept applications for our: 

  • Carers Grants
  • Health and Wellbeing Grants 

This is because of the drop in our income due to COVID-19. We’ve had to make the difficult decision to stop some of our activities. This includes our national grants programme which will be paused for 2 to 3 years.

But there are still other ways to access financial support.

Local MS Society group grants

Some of our local groups offer their own grants. Get in touch with your local group to see if they’re considering grant applications. If they are, they’ll give you an application form and explain what to do.

If you’d like information about alternative grant providers, you can use the Turn2Us website to search for grants and find benefits advice. Or, call the Turn2Us Helpline on 0808 802 2000. Their team is available between 9am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

Professional referrals for grants 

Some grant applications need a referral from someone in health or social care. We can’t make those kind of referrals, but we can help point you towards organisations who might have grants available to you. 

Our MS Helpline

Our MS Helpline can help you find organisations with available grants. Call 0808 800 8000, direct private message on Facebook messenger or email [email protected].

We're available Monday to Friday, 9am – 7pm, except bank holidays.
