We help to support those with MS and their families.
If you have been diagnosed with MS or need support we can help...
Being newly diagnosed can be a very emotional and confusing time and we recommend you should visit the UK MS Society website or contact Sarah Kean at Neurocare.
Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in the work of the Society. Our members are a wide range of people including people with MS, carers, family, friends and health professionals.
The majority of the MS Society’s income comes from donations and your support can really make a difference.
The society was established in 1961 and the aims of the society are to support those on the Island with Multiple Sclerosis and their families, emotionally and financially, whilst searching for the cause and cure of the disease.
For those newly diagnosed in Jersey, the link to the UK Multiple Sclerosis “Just diagnosed” offers information or alternatively contact Sarah Kean at Neurocare on 01534 444524.
For any member currently needing extra assistance on a more practical level, please get in touch with our Outreach Team. We can help with a vast array of things such as aiding you in reaching your doctor's appointments, or Social Security etc, getting you appropriate aids into your homes, and can also arrange to take you out for coffee or lunch so that you can enjoy going out for a chat.
Should you wish to find out more about the MS Jersey branch then please have a look at our website. If you wish to make a donation to our society, it will be very gratefully received.
It is possible for MS to occur at any age, but people are most commonly diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40. Women are two to three times as likely to develop MS as men. MS is a condition of the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), which controls the body's actions and activities, such as movement and balance.
Each nerve fiber in the central nervous system is surrounded by a substance called myelin. Myelin helps the messages from the brain travel quickly and smoothly to the rest of the body. In MS, the myelin becomes damaged, disrupting the transfer of these messages.
MS is unpredictable. Symptoms can occur randomly. Some of the most common are problems with mobility and balance, pain, fatigue and muscle spasms.
