At the MS Society we put people living with MS at the centre of everything we do, and it's this commitment that unites us across the UK. Our vision is a world free from the effects of MS. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure, but until then, we will do all that we can to enable people with MS to live life, knowing that they do not have to face MS alone.

We have launched our new five year organisational strategy, making it an exciting time to join us. Our strategy is based on what people affected by MS have told us is important to them. It gives us a clear and determined focus. We have big aspirations and we need brilliant people to help us achieve our ambitious goals.
