Who we are

Shift.ms is the social network for people with multiple sclerosis. Founded by MSers, for MSers, the charity supports many thousands of recently diagnosed people across the world as they make sense of MS. It’s independent and it’s free.


Our members are at the centre of everything we do. Members inform our decisions, conduct interviews with leading MS researchers and generate content for our website and social media channels.


Our volunteers keep Shift.ms alive and breathing, which is why we call them ‘The Energy’. We’re working towards creating a self-sustaining community able to identify and meet its own needs, with little need for paid staff. We have over 200 volunteers who offer their time in various ways including moderating the site, fundraising, spreading the word about Shift.ms at events and coordinating the Twitter Takeover. Find out more and meet some our volunteers.
