6 weeks of action for MS

Too many people affected by MS across the UK are having to fight for the treatments, care, and financial support they need. Now, more than ever - we need to speak up together.

Right now there's a lot of talk about Brexit, but we need to make sure people with MS aren’t forgotten.

We’ve come together over six weeks, to take action on key issues to stand up for people living with MS across the UK. We’ve already made an impact with our campaigning, and there’s two weeks left to take action.

Together we stopped delays to MS treatments

5,190 of you signed our petition to stop delays to MS treatments in Northern Ireland.

Thanks to your support, the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust announced they’re dropping plans to delay access to Disease Modifying Therapies (DMTs) for new patients with MS in Northern Ireland.

Take action on PIP

Our report with the Disability Benefits Consortium (DBC) shows PIP isn't working for lots of people with long term conditions.

As members of the DBC, we’re asking MPs to write to the Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work – Penny Mordaunt MP – about the need to make urgent improvements to PIP.  Many of you already have, but there’s still time to take action.

End the #CareCrisis

1 in 3 people living with MS aren’t getting the support they need with essential everyday activities like washing, dressing and eating. That's unacceptable.

We know the social care system in England is chronically underfunded. And it’s failing to deliver the quality care that people affected by MS of all ages rely on to live independently.

Together, we’ve already reached 90% of all MPs in England with our emails about the care crisis. Thank you! Now we're joining 80 other charities to keep up the pressure.
