Support Groups and Networks

Wellington MS has a number of local support groups in the community.

These well-established groups suit people who have had MS for a while and are able to get to a group during the day.

If you are interested in coming to an established support group, give us a call first to discuss your needs and we will work with you to ensure we get the right fit for you.

If you are working or newly diagnosed

If you are newly diagnosed with MS and/or working and would like support and to make connections with others with MS, your local MS Community Advisor can make some great connections for you.

Ph Wellington/Hutt (04) 388-8127, Kapiti (04) 298-8887, Wairarapa (06) 378-6913, or email

Please note that there may be times when we are unable to meet face-to-face for health and safety reasons. Where possible an online option will be made available.
