Surveys For People Affected By Multiple Sclerosis

The MS Society, which researches and campaigns for those affected by the neurological disorder multiple sclerosis, has launched two surveys to find out the views of people who have it and also their families and friends.

There are around 100,000 in Britain with the condition – which affects a person’s nervous system in a variety of ways – and every year there are around 5,000 new diagnoses.

The first survey is entitled My MS My Needs and intends to find out about the lifestyles and problems faced by those with MS. It is the third time such a survey has been held and knowledge gained will fuel campaigns for fair, relevant policy and improved healthcare for people living with MS in the UK.

This year, for the first time, there is also an MS Family and Friends survey, intended to find out about the care and support these people give and how the society assures it can be improved.

The surveys close on May 31. If you would like to talk to someone personally about any of the issues the surveys raise you can contact the MS Society Helpline free of charge on 0808 800 8000 (Monday to Friday 9am-9pm) or by email to helpline@mssociety.org.uk

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
