Shift.ms is the only UK based organisation focused on the recently diagnosed MS population. We get that there are other impacts on a newly diagnosed MSer aside from the medical and physical ones. We’re talking about the emotional and social impacts. So our ongoing mission is to create a way for MSers to chat with each other and create change rather than bombard you with mountains of information.
To achieve our aim, we focus on three areas
- Reducing isolation and increasing social support for MSers
- Helping MSers to acknowledge and actively manage their condition
- Creating a self-sustaining community organisation, run by its members
