Free online MS Awareness training for Care Providers


The session is open to care and support professionals (or volunteers) who may be supporting people with multiple sclerosis. This could be:

  • Residential care home support staff
  • Domiciliary/home care workers
  • community support workers
  • Personal Assistants
  • Private carers

Please share with any colleagues who you think may benefit. 

What is the session about?

The session will touch on:

  • What is MS?
  • Symptoms that may impact on wellbeing
  • A personal insight into living well with MS
  • Symptom management and wellness – what support do people with MS need?
  • MS-UK services and how we can support the MS community and their allies
  • How care and support workers can support people on their MS journey

All MS-UK’s work is driven by our values and includes the voices of people living with MS. This session will be delivered by a member of our team in partnership with a volunteer with lived experience.

This training session will provide participants with a better understanding of how they can support people on their MS journey. They will have more knowledge of the condition and specific resources (both online and in the community) that will be useful for anyone supporting a person with MS.

A prior participant said their biggest take away was:

‘Being provided with such a detailed insight into MS and all the tools needed to work with a client with MS’

‘The lived experience of someone with MS was such an eye opener. It made me see beyond the words MS to the person with MS. Thank you’
