About MS

Multiple sclerosis is a condition that affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. It is a lifelong condition, usually diagnosed in people’s 30s and 40s, and can cause a wide variety of symptoms, including eyesight problems, fatigue, balance problems, altered sensations and cognitive issues. Over 150,000 people in the UK live with MS and it affects around two and a half times as many women as men. There is a wide range of disease modifying treatments, but there is currently no cure.

About the MS Trust

The MS Trust is a charity which works to make a difference today for the more than 150,000 people living with MS in the UK.

We produce practical, reliable information, online and in print, and offer a telephone and email enquiry service to anyone who needs to know more about MS.

We fight to make sure everyone affected by MS can access good quality, specialist care. We offer a full range of support to both specialists and health professionals with an interest in MS, including online information, publications, newsletters and professional development. We work in partnership with health professionals to improve MS services now and in the future, and we fund MS specialist nurses in the areas of greatest need.
