We have been running a scheme to support those affected by MS and their families since 2008. The project is currently funded by the Cambridge, Ely and Newmarket Group and covers Cambridge, Ely, Newmarket and the rest of West Suffolk. This enables us to provide more tailored support to clients on a range of issues from claiming benefits, to dealing with employment issues, money advice, accessing grants and support to adapt homes etc. We work with neurological nurses to take referrals, but also welcome contact from people directly, and provide holistic advice according to the needs of the individual or family, including advice for carers.
Due to the way in which MS develops, many people are not regularly engaged with medical professionals, so we have found some clients who knew nothing of the benefits to which they were entitled, and whose quality of life was greatly improved once they were put in touch with our caseworkers.
If this is relevant to you, and you would like to talk to someone about the help that we can provide, please either ring our MS team on 01284 717190 and leave a message or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
