Our events guidance reduces the time you need to spend on risk management, whilst ensuring you can provide a safe environment for members and visitors to take part in different kinds of activities. It removes your responsibility for managing emergencies such as fire and first aid incidents.
Cheering points, information points and single stalls guidance applies to cheering or information points and single stalls at a third party event such as a local fete, marathon, etc., where MS Society volunteers or members of staff do not provide personal care that would normally be delivered by carers.
Use this guidance when organising cheering points, information points and single stalls.
Insurance and emergency forms
MS Society events are covered by our central insurance, provided that agreed guidance is followed or a risk assessment is in place.
Familiarise yourself with our accident and incident recording and reporting processes before your event.
