Why we need your money

Shift.ms supports 35,000 monthly users through the adjustment following a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

MS is typically diagnosed when people are in their 20s and 30s, a time of major life decisions about relationships, family and career. The uncertainty that comes with a diagnosis of MS is isolating and overwhelming.

 

Your donations provide the services to ensure no MSer feels alone.

“Someone to turn to no matter how I’m feeling. I’ve also found Shift.ms gives me answers to lots of questions, people share their own journey and health tips.”

The sense of community that Shift.ms affords people of all ages, walks of life and from all around the world has made this big disease seem like a smaller part of my life.”

“When I was first diagnosed, I was scared and felt alone, as I didn’t know anyone else who had MS, and knew very little about it. Shift.ms gave me somewhere to connect with other people, and to helped to show me that I’m not the only one going through these things.”

The Shift.ms website is designed and built by MSers, for MSers.

This gives an immediate tax relief of up to 45% depending what rate of tax an employee pays. In order to operate the scheme your employer needs to contract with a recognised Payroll Giving Agency such as Charities Trust or CAF.
