The Wellington Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society Inc, is one of 18 regional societies throughout New Zealand, looking after the needs of Persons with Multiple Sclerosis (PwMS) and other allied neurological diseases, as detailed in our constitution..
The Wellington Society is a not-for-profit organisation, devoted to supporting through our three Community Advisors, those with MS, their carers and their families and whanau. Since a cure is still far off our principal mission is to maximise their quality of life through information, education and advocacy,to facilitate the provision of all appropriate health and welfare services. Our aim is to provide a tailored and confidential service.
MS Wellington Coverage
In our region (greater Wellington to South of the Otaki River, the Hutt Valley and the Wairarapa) we have 500 members. Including family members, whānau and carers this amounts to about 1200 people who need us.
People with MS are generally self-referred, or referred by Neurologists, GPs, Allied Health teams or by family and whānau.
