Get involved with our Strategy2024

What’s important to people living with MS? What’s most challenging and how do we make sure we’re meeting people’s needs?

Our organisational strategy comes to an end this year. As we develop our next strategy these are the types of issues we’ll need to understand to make sure we’re focusing on the right things.

We want to know what matters most to you, so please tell us what you think by sharing your thoughts on our survey.

Why we need a strategy

Our strategy sets out the difference we want to make and how. As a charity, it defines our goals and what we want to do now and in the long term. For us, our core vision remains the same: a world free from the effects of MS. Our 2014-2019 strategy was endorsed by you, our community.

Our 2020-2024 strategy will go to our AGM this September. Like our current strategy, our new one will focus on the things that matter most to people living with MS.

  • Building on what we’ve done so far. We’ve done a lot to progress our seven 2014-2019 goals, including: Speaking out and campaigning on access to treatments, the benefits system and social care.
  • Focusing research on developing treatments for progression, including co-funding a clinical trial testing if simvastatin can slow progression in secondary progressive MS.
  • Providing lots of new and long-established services and support, both locally and nationally.

You can read more about what we’ve achieved together so far on our impact page 

Overcoming challenges

We know there’s still a way to go. Particularly, there are still challenges for people accessing treatments, care and support. We’re working to understand these issues to address them in our next strategy.

Let us know what matters to you

Please take a few minutes to tell us what you think we should be focusing on and how we can better support people living with MS now and in the future. We'll consider all the feedback we receive from people like you: our members, wider community and staff to build an accurate picture of everyone’s views.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. If you have any questions, please let us know at strategy2024@mssociety.org.uk
