Multiple System Atrophy Trust

We are the UK's main support and information service for people who have multiple system atrophy (MSA) - a rare neurological disease with no known cause or cure.

Founded 1997

  • Mission statement

    We are the UK's main support and information service for people who have multiple system atrophy (MSA) - a rare neurological disease with no known cause or cure. As well as helping people who have MSA, we are also there to support families whose lives are affected by MSA as well as carers and health and care professionals who look after and treat people with the disease.

    The Trust was formed in 1997 (originally called the Sarah Matheson Trust - renamed to Multiple System Atrophy Trust in 2010) and our vision is a World Free of MSA.

    We are committed to making this happen by funding research to find the cause of, and one day a cure for, MSA.
