PORTSMOUTH & DISTRICT MS SOCIETY
"Our aim is to assist people to cope with MS by giving mutual support, information and advice."
The Portsmouth and District branch of the MS Society helps local people in many different ways, one of which is financial support in the form of a grant to help individuals whose lives have been touched by MS and may need help with equipment or respite.
MS can be tough to deal with, especially when you've just been diagnosed. But you're not alone. Here are some of the ways we can help with support and information about everything from telling your family to what your rights are at work.
Find out about support for people living with MS including coping with diagnosis, telling people you have MS, MS Helpline and getting help.
Find out more about disability benefits, the grants we provide and other financial support for people with MS.
Find out about the changes you can make to minimise the impact of MS on your life, and where to turn if you need more support.
Our bloggers and MS Forum members know what its like to live with MS. Read personal stories on our blog or chat on our forum.
Most people with MS will need support from family and friends at some point. If you care for someone with MS we can help.
Our free MS Helpline gives emotional support and information to anyone living with MS.
This section explains more about healthcare, social care and residential care, and will help you get the best support for you.

As a Branch we are self-funding and rely heavily on fundraising to enable us to continue the support we offer to those affected by MS. Presently we are looking for enthusiastic and imaginative people who can help us with fundraising ideas or by participating in helping to raise much needed funds for us to continue our good work in helping people when they are in need. Do you, a relative or friend have any ideas to help us raise much needed funds for our branch?
