Our story

Welcome to our appeal page, I'm George, the co-founder and CEO of I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2004 and started the charity in 2009.

When I was first diagnosed, one of the biggest challenges I faced was finding people who understood what I was going through. The online community was an opportunity to meet far more people and for me, connecting with other MSers was a lifeline.

I started so MSers who are diagnosed today have a safe community where they can connect and learn from others living with MS.

80% of people with MS have experienced isolation. That's two million worldwide which is mind-blowing and heartbreaking. We know there is more we can do.

We're building an app so more people can benefit from easy access, fast, 1 to 1 support. When people need connection most, the MS community will be just one tap away.

In our 2023 impact report, 86% of members said they felt supported and encouraged by their peers. The evidence is clear: connection is transformative.
