About Us >>
This Charity, set up in 1983, aims to provide therapies, services and support needed to enable people living with Multiple Sclerosis to self-manage their condition. If you have MS, please come and see us – there is bound to be something for you.
The MS Therapy Centre receives no statutory funding, just the money we raise ourselves through our fundraising activities.
To be able to provide all our therapies and facilities, we rely on the generosity of people like you.
Please consider donating today – there are so many ways for you to help us raise the £1,000+ a day that we need to run the Centre.
We have lots of exciting events taking place. Please see our events page for more details.

High Sheriffs of Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire
This week we have reflected the way in which our charity is open to people living with MS in both Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire by interacting with the High Sheriffs of both counties.
On Monday, we were very pleased to welcome Rupert Fordham, the High Sheriff of Northamptonshire, who toured the MS Therapy Centre and met some of our members. Mr Fordham was very impressed with the work that we do, and hopes to work with us to make sure that people with MS in Northamptonshire know that we are here for them.
