Recognising your contributions

We recognise that without the contribution of volunteers, we would only be able to achieve a small percentage of our work. We want you to clearly see the difference that your volunteering makes to the lives of people affected by MS.

We want you to keep in touch with your staff contact so they can use your experience to support other groups and projects.

Taking pride in our impact

We are committed to understanding the impact of volunteering, locally and nationally. This includes the impact on people who use our services, on our volunteers’ development and wellbeing, and on wider society.
