We would like to know your thoughts...

Last year we consulted with the MS community to inform the development of our new strategy. The most talked about gap for people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) across the UK was appropriate support to tackle loneliness and isolation. We were told that there was simply not enough support to overcome the barriers contributing toward their isolation and not enough available to help them feel a part of something, connected to the world and less lonely.

MS-UK uses the voices of people affected by multiple sclerosis to inform all our work. We therefore would like to understand this issue a bit more and would be grateful if you could answer the following survey. 
If you find any of these questions difficult, please do get in touch with our helpline. We are here to listen and offer you support. The number is 0800 783 0518, you can email info@ms-uk.org or visit our website to connect via live web chat at www.ms-uk.org/helpline.
