Campaign in your local area
Want to bring about change in your local area?
Too many people with MS in the UK have to fight for the treatments, services, care and support they need. Sometimes it’s just a case of fighting for MS to be understood. Getting the right services and support often comes down to local decisions.
Campaigning comes in all shapes and sizes
Whatever action you take, it all makes a difference. Campaigning can be small actions like sending an email or a tweet, or a large scale campaign event like a protest or demonstration.
You might be starting out alone, or with your MS Society local group or alongside other campaigners.
We’re all taking local action together to make a difference.
Become a trained campaigner
Do you have a great idea to make change for people living with MS? We can support you to campaign and make it happen.
Our campaigner volunteer role means you can get support from staff and other campaigners, as well as accessing training and support to get funding for your campaign.
You’ll bring your own ideas, local knowledge and personal experience to your campaigns. You’ll make decisions about your own campaign activities and collaborate with other campaigners in your area.
