Background

Founded 22 years ago, the MS Trust is a charity that works with and for people in the UK with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  The MS Trust’s aim is to make a real difference for people with MS by being a trusted source of information and support, working to secure the future of MS specialist services and by acting as a policy advocate to ensure that people with MS get the services they need.

The MS Trust believes that people with MS should have access to high quality services to enable them to maintain as active a lifestyle as possible; have access to trained health care professionals such as MS specialist nurses; be equal partners with the professionals in making choices about their health care and have the information to help make the right choices for them.

The charity has a turnover of over £3m per year and 36 (27 fte) members of staff.  MS Trust works closely with a wide range of organisations, including the NHS, companies in the Health Sector and other third sector organisations.
