MS-UK celebrate World MS Day by launching new film
On 27 May 2015, around the globe people will be celebrating World MS Day. To mark the date, MS-UK, the national charity supporting anyone affected by multiple sclerosis, is launching a new film about their work.
The film is called ‘We’re Here’ and aims to tell people all about MS-UK and their professional services, such as the MS-UK Helpline and New Pathways magazine.
There are 2.3 million people with MS worldwide, and over 100,000 people in the UK. MS-UK is a charity dedicated to supporting people to have choice, control and independence when managing this neurological condition.
MS-UK firmly believes accessibility is a fundamental right of all people living with MS. MS-UK decided during their strategy planning to bring accessibility to the forefront. They began their journey by installing BrowseAloud on their website, and offering New Pathways magazine in printed and audio versions. Earlier in 2015, the MS-UK Helpline launched a new web chat service, for those unable to use a telephone.
Amy Woolf, CEO of MS-UK, says, ‘We are really pleased that the theme of access has been chosen again for World MS Day. It is timely, as we introduce our second fully accessible film this year, ‘We’re Here’. But our commitment doesn’t stop there. We are planning to launch a digital version of our magazine New Pathways in the future, and we have more films planned for later in 2015. It is a very exciting time.’
Thursday 07 July 2016 is THE BIG HEALTH DAY from 10am to 3pm.
Disability Essex provided advice, support and a place to socialise for disabled people, their families and carers since 1949 but has closed due to financial difficulties.
