To me the MS Trust is symbolised by the Open Door. When I was diagnosed, it felt like doors closed. I hope the MS Trust changed that for a lot of people.
With MS, one size does not fit all. For the enquiry team this means every call or email is different and personal to that caller. We work hard to find the information someone needs for their individual situation to help them navigate life with MS.
The MS Trust is not afraid to challenge the status quo and to raise inequity in standards of care and to try to provide solutions. Many nurses, me included, would not be where we are today without the MS Trust.
For me the MS Trust is a valuable source of knowledge, support and friendship. Here’s to the next 25 years.
I couldn't imagine doing an MS clinic without one of our MS nurse specialists, nor being able to refer my patients to the MS Trust for evidence-based information.
I have felt supported and encouraged by all staff at the MS Trust, whom I now consider friends and the unsung heroes in the battle to support those of us with MS.
The MS Trust is a special charity. It is small enough to know the people it’s supporting personally and big enough to make a real difference.
The MS Trust offers a fantastic service to people with MS. The information booklets are excellent, in particular the MS Decisions tool and are helpful at all stages of the disease.
From the very outset of diagnosis, the MS Trust were the 'go to' people for honest, informative and practical advice in a non-frightening manner. To then discover they were responsible for the wonderful MS nurses just sealed it for us as to how much we value them.
As the official MS Dog I just want to say they are ace. They give advice to my mum when she is suffering which I like and I get to train mum and dad for their fundraising.
The MS Trust continues to be an invaluable wealth of accessible information and guidance, from the day of my diagnosis to 9 years down the line.
For me, the MS Trust means the MS nurses. Trained and often funded by the MS Trust, the MS nurses have been my first port of call for anything and everything related to my MS since my diagnosis.

10 years ago the MS Trust was there for me with helpful, accessible and easy to understand information just when I needed it most, when I felt there was no-one else to turn to.
My sister-in-law had MS and was a total fan of the trust, she admired their approach, which she felt helped her live with the disease rather than become a patient.
The charity to me is in the forefront of my mind all the time. There’s a friendliness which comes through the phone line, and they always give you the advice and support you need.
What the MS Trust has achieved in the past 25 years, means that no one with MS today, has to go through what my mum and aunt did on their own.
The MS Trust truly resides in my heart. The Trust has been a huge part of my life post-diagnosis and has been key to me being able to live a positive life with MS.
We have cupboards full of MS Trust booklets. I never hesitate in giving a patient an MS Trust book, on any topic at all, and I know I’ll be able to stand behind what is there.
Over the past 25 years the MS Trust has provided constant support as well as information, innovation, inspiration and enthusiasm and has always gone the extra mile for people with MS and the professionals who support them.
The MS Trust embodies the highest standards of commitment, creativity and unwavering dedication to helping all people with MS live their lives as fully as possible.
My sister Sally has had MS for 20 years and values the fantastic support the MS Trust offers. I’m proud to have raised money for the MS Trust.
