Shape how we work

All our activities and services are coproduced with volunteers and people affected by MS.
We involve people who deliver and benefit from our services in every level of our decision making – in advisory, consultation, decision and insight groups. It’s how we make sure we understand and deliver what our community needs as effectively as we can.
How can you know what I need if you don’t ask me? Caroline, living with MS, one of our experts by experience
