Based in Morpeth, Northumberland, MS Research and Relief Fund aims to provide good quality information and a range of services to help people whose lives have been affected by MS to understand and cope with the condition.
We realise that most people seek information on what the condition means to them, what advances have been made in treatments, therapies etc. and where services can be accessed. To this end, we aim to provide practical advice and information on a range of topics, including some of the more practical issues such as welfare benefits.
Our Grants Service is available to groups and individuals to fund items or services that may fall outside the scope of statutory bodies. You can find more from our Grants section.
