The MS Information and Therapy Centre is a small self-funded registered charity based in Gloucester. It is run by 1 part-time member of staff Rachael Mason (centre manager) and a team of volunteers, all promoting self-help. We are financed entirely by donations and constant fund raising events.
We aim to provide help and support for people with MS and those with neurological problems.
There is no cure for this disabling condition at this time and from funds raised we provide subsidised treatments for those who are able to use them, to help relieve their symptoms and improve quality of life.
The Centre is also used as a ‘Drop In’ by approximately 100 people at present with numbers rising as more government facilities start to close. Here they can meet up with friends, relatives, and carers for help and support, or just a friendly chat to share information with those who may not otherwise leave their homes. It is a haven for many to socialise no matter how limited their physical disabilities are and feel integrated back into the community. The Carers also can take a much needed break. The centre opens 5 days a week for 4 hrs per day.
The treatments we offer are: Physiotherapy Oxygen Therapy Remedial Massage Acupuncture.
Thank you for your support and Good Luck
