Our Vision is to be: A centre of excellence providing professional specialist therapies and support for people with MS in a self- help environment. The principal activity and objective is to provide facilities to improve the condition of people living with Multiple Sclerosis.

Founded 1983

  • Mission statement

    The MS Therapy Centre was established in 1983. SInce then it has grown in to the Centre of Excellence that it is today.

    We currently have 800 registered members of which 350 attend the Centre on weekly basis.

    We provide a wide range of services and therapies which include, MS Nurses, Counselling, Physiotherapy, Specialist Gym, Hydrotherapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen, Shiatsu, APS (Action Potential Simulation), Reflexology, Yoga, Pilates, Orthotics Clinic, Bowen.

    The range of support and guidance given to the members is excellent and more importantly it is all given under one roof and with short waiting times.

    Another important factor is the ability for like minded people to be able to meet, talk and discuss issues that only those living with MS will understand. The support that the members give one another is important and worthwhile.

    For some the therapies mean less visits to hospital and less medication.

    The charity receives no government funding and is reliant upon the goodwill of the local community that it serves, together with businesses, trusts and fundraising events. Our small team which is run by a part-time fundraiser and a very supportive team of volunteers help to organise, man and run all our events. Without this good will and dedication the Centre would not be able to survive.

    The Centre is also reliant upon volunteers to help with our Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Sessions, maintenance and fundraising, we currently have around 40-50 regular volunteers.
