Charity information

Berkshire MS Therapy Centre

We are a grass roots charity created 30 years by people with MS to support the local MS community. Our motto is 'Self Help is Our Way of Action'

Founded 1982

  • Mission statement

    The Berkshire Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre is an independent local charity providing beneficial therapies, information and practical support to people with MS, throughout Berkshire and the surrounding area.

    The therapies, which include physiotherapy, oxygen therapy and counselling, are aimed at managing the symptoms of the illness and dealing with the emotional difficulties that come with it, therefore enabling people with MS to live more positive and independent lives.

    The Centre supports over 1,000 people with MS, as well as their families and carers, providing nearly 10,000 treatments and therapies every year. It is a vital resource as there is a particularly high incidence of the condition in Berkshire. The charity is entirely self-supporting relying on donations, fundraising events and the support of volunteers to raise the £350,,000 needed each year.
