About us 

We put people living with MS at the centre of everything we do, and it’s this commitment that unites us across the UK.

Our vision is a world free from the effects of MS. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. But until then, we'll do all we can to help people with MS to live life, knowing they don't have to face MS alone. Our strategy is based on what people with MS have told us is important to them. It gives us a clear and determined focus.

We have big aspirations and we need brilliant new people to help us achieve our ambitious goals. Will you join our team to stop MS?
