MS Society

Charity number 1139257

At the MS Society we put people affected by 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 will do all that we can to enable people with MS to live life, knowing that they do not have to face MS alone. We have recently launched our new five year organisational strategy which is based on what people affected by MS have told us is important to them, and it gives us a clear and determined focus. We have big aspirations and we need to attract brilliant new people to help us achieve our ambitious goals.
