Shift.ms is a social network where recently diagnosed MSers can ask questions, share experiences and meet others in similar situations.
Our community is a safe, non-judgemental place where people can ﬁnd out more about adjusting to life with MS. We facilitate conversations to create change rather than acting as information providers.
We are the only charity aimed at the recently diagnosed.
Diagnosis brings huge uncertainty, which is difficult to manage alone and can lead to feelings of isolation which can affect adjustment, relationships, work, lifestyle and beyond. We know from our community how valuable support is at this time.
An independent evaluation by the Tavistock Institute showed the following impacts of Shift.ms on the lives of its members.
