Wales - My MS, My Rights, My Choices

My MS My Rights My Choices Project

  • 571 people attended information events including Newly Diagnosed Days, Living Well with MS Days, Mindfulness and Fatigue Management.

  • 485 people received one to one support with things like benefit claims, grant applications and employment.

  • Over £35,855 secured in grants for people in financial need living with MS across Wales

These are just some of the amazing achievements to date from our My MS My Rights My Choices project.

Also, since the project began in 2017, 63 people have been recruited as Information and Support Volunteers along with Stakeholder and Advisory Board Members – the majority of whom are living with or affected by MS.

Many of our volunteers have benefited from the project themselves and are now sharing their experience and skills providing support in their community, arranging information stands in clinics and helping people to complete grant applications.

Don't miss out

The project will end in March 2020. There’s no extension but hopefully a further application to the National Lottery Community Fund will be successful and we’ll be able to set up something similar. We will keep you informed!

There’s no doubt that this project has made a huge difference to the lives of those who have received help.

There’s only a short time left and we don’t want anyone missing out who needs support, so if you know anyone in your area tell them about the project and get in touch.
