Introducing a new support group…

Welcome to Many Scars. We are based in Norfolk but will speak/text/FaceTime/Skype to anyone in the UK coming to terms with a new diagnosis or just simply needing some support.

Four of us run the group. Three of us have varying degrees of ms and the forth member of the team is the mother of one if us. She us excellent at arranging family support meet ups.

If you feel as though you need some support either locally or nationally, any one of us can be contacted using the methods below.

We will shortly be releasing a programme of events for 2018, a little later than planned, as the weather has been so depressing. Be sure to check our website or follow us on Facebook. *Many Scars Norfolk*

Thanks for all the information. Do you do any London groups?

Not at the moment, but we are available to chat to over the phone for support. Maybe you could have a night in Norwich and attend our next Social event…thanks for your interest though.

Thanks vixen, the way I see it, I’ve been given so much help by professionals and other people, that I want to give something back that I’ve learnt about ms and it’s challenges.
So, for someone newly diagnosed, we are here to help. We all had similar stresses at diagnosis, where we were told very little and there was little support. All we do is offer some support to those that require it.

Plus, as 70% of the population of those with ms being over 50, they are the people that often suffer in silence. Many Scars are there for those aged 16 to 90, so a fairly wide audience!

We aim to be as helpful and valuable as possible.
