Each national council usually has 12 members (15 in England). They form a key link within each nation between the Board and the MS community, as well as giving a national flavour to our UK-wide strategy.
Our council members contribute to the development of our strategy, develop annual plans, act as ambassadors and promote, develop and support volunteers.
Councils meet four times a year. Council members are elected by our members within their nation, except in England where they are elected on a regional basis.
They're ultimately accountable to our Board of Trustees.
The most rewarding part of my role is really feeling like I've made a difference. Mary Douglas, Chair of our Scotland Council
