MS Research and Relief Outreach Groups

MS Research and Relief Fund (MSRRF) is a UK registered charity (No.228634) that aims to improve the quality of life of all people affected by MS.

MS can affect a person’s mobility, their independence and their confidence, and can also change the lives of their partners, families and friends.

They provide a range of services to help people whose lives have been affected by MS. In their seven centres and outreach groups across the North East of England, they provide complementary therapies and gentle exercise, completely free of charge to people with MS and their carers.
