About Revive MS Support
More than 15,000 people live with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in Scotland, the highest prevalence of any country in the world.
Revive MS Support’s mission is to be a caring and inclusive community where everyone affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can find physical, emotional, financial, and social support. Our centre in Govan is open to everyone affected by MS, and is a place to find support, friendship, and hope.
We do this by providing a full range of services to improve the wellbeing of everyone affected by MS throughout Greater Glasgow. These include physiotherapy and exercise classes, counselling, advice and information from our MS Specialist Nurse, complementary therapies, speech and language therapy, support groups, oxygen therapy, and welfare & benefits advice. All our services are free to access not only for the person living with MS, but also their family and carers.
We have ambitious plans to reach more people affected by MS, and to ensure we achieve our goals we are looking for a Grants Officer to join our team.
You’ll support the Senior Grants Manager in the achievement of the income plan, maintaining existing relationships and identifying and securing new funding opportunities from charitable trusts, foundations, and public grant funders to support current and future services and organisational core costs.
If you have the skills, initiative, and experience to join Revive MS Support on the next stage of our journey as we strive to improve the lives of people affected by MS, we’d love to hear from you.
