The MS Society launched their wellbeing hub on 30 May 2020 – World MS Day – and will run over the course of the next three months.
The hub offers a range of services for anyone in Scotland who has MS and these services will largely be offered via Zoom, phone or e-mail.
With the MS community approximately 12 times more likely to experience loneliness, the charity decided that the hub was vital during the coronavirus pandemic, which has left more people isolated at home.
The activities and services offered seek to improve both physical and mental health. Overall, 470 online meetings, webinars and sessions will be offered to 350 people living with MS.
Labour MSP, Neil Findlay MSP said:
“The wellbeing hub launched by the MS Society is a fantastic way to ensure that those living with MS feel supported and connected during the continued coronavirus crisis.
“I would urge any of my constituents living with MS to make use of this excellent resource that will be available for the following few months”
