  • Mission statement

    The MS Therapy Centre’s (NW) overall aim is to enrich the lives of people with Multiple Sclerosis by providing therapies in a caring, supportive and positive setting. The aim of the therapies is to enable our members to have a better quality of life whilst managing their condition. Therapies therefore tackle both physical and psychological symptoms.

    We are a self-help group and registered charity endeavouring to provide a complete service for MS sufferers all throughout the North West of England, encouraging them to look after themselves and make the best of their lives within the confines of their condition.

    Our services are open to all neurological conditions, some forms of cancer and varying other conditions. We have an average of 300 active members at any given time of all ages and denominations. We operate a policy of Equality and Diversity at the centre.

    As well as giving members a positive place to receive alternative therapies, the centre exists as a drop in centre and a community of support to members and their carers in which experiences can be shared and support can be received.
