MSRC can help in a number of ways.
Firstly we are able to talk to you personally if you contact us on 0800 783 0518. (Unfortunately this 0800 number will not work from abroad and you will need to use our office number and the appropriate code from your country e.g. 011441206505444 from USA and 00441206505444 from Europe)
Alternatively you can use our office number which is 01206 505444 or you can contact us from the website, or, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are usually available Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 5.00pm and have an answer machine outside of those hours which we always respond to as soon as we can
We are pleased to announce that the 24 Hour Telephone Counselling Service is available and can be reached by dialling the freephone number 0800 783 0518 and choosing option 1 (within the UK only. Access from abroad is as explained above.)
In some circumstances the support might just take the form of being someone to talk to and share concerns or fears. It might be the provision of information at the time or by providing leaflets or books that could help. We will also refer you to other organisations if they are better suited to provide the support needed at the time.
We are also willing to come out and give talks (UK only unless someone is willing to pay the air fare to somewhere nice) on any subject connected with MS that a group requests. This is sometimes used by professional groups so that they can gain a real insight into the matters affecting their clients which they should be aware of.
If the need is a question of financial support for a group (Sorry but we cannot help individuals under our current rules) then contact us with your request and we will always look at ways of helping. You will be guaranteed a positive attitude from us even if in the end we have to say no - in other words our instinct is to help and if we can possibly find a way we will.
The only way to really find out how we can help is to get in touch about your particular situation and give us a try. We hope you will.
