MS support in Scotland

We can help you find practical and emotional support for living with multiple sclerosis (MS) in Scotland.

Emotional health courses

We've co-designed a stress and anxiety course which will be piloted in Scotland. It's for anyone living with MS who wants to learn more about the tools and techniques you can use to manage stress and anxiety with MS.

Following funding from Scottish Government Neurological Framework funds we'll be co-producing another emotional health course late 2023 and piloting it 2024. We'll be working with a number of partners including, The Oxygen Works, Myself Management and Leuchie House.

These courses are currently in development. You can get more information by contacting [email protected]

Online LivingWell events

Our LivingWell virtual events provide peer support group sessions, information webinars and conversation café groups each month.

MS Helpline

Our national MS Helpline provides emotional support, information and offers a benefits advice service, legal advice and a befriending scheme.

We work with The Legal Service Agency (LSA), to provide free legal advice for anyone with MS living in Scotland. We can provide legal advice on:

  • housing
  • power of attorney
  • employment
  • disability discrimination
  • community care

We can’t offer advice about other areas of law, like criminal or family law.

The MS Helpline is open Monday to Friday from 9am - 7pm except 

Local groups

Our local groups are run by volunteers and provide a range of support and activities for everyone affected by MS in Scotland.
