1-to-1 Support

Read more about our 1-to-1 Support Team

Here at MS Together we understand how much of a rollercoaster an MS diagnosis can be, and how much of a difference it can make to speak to someone who has lived experience of what you are going through. So we want to provide an ‘active listening’ service to help you if you are struggling.

As a member of MS Together, you can reach out to any one of the support team for a chat, and they will listen without judgement.

**Please do bear in mind that our support team are not trained counsellors, and as this is a voluntary service we will not be available 24/7. However if you reach out, we promise to respond as quickly as we can and, where necessary, we can help you to seek professional support.
