Welcome to the Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Group, Essex! We provide practical and emotional support to significantly improve the quality of life of people who have multiple sclerosis. We have a group of friendly, qualified staff who are happy to help.
We would just like to give a massive thank you to Eddie and the black taxi drivers at Heathrow airport who helped us to raise the whopping grand total of £1,410 to support people with Multiple Sclerosis at the MSTG. A big thank you also goes to Phil, Tina, Patsy and Mike who, having left home at 4.00 a.m. to get to the airport to rattle their buckets and hand out sweeties to the drivers.

2017 MSTG Christmas lunch
We have booked our Christmas lunch for 13.00 p.m. on Thursday 7 December 2017 at The Halfway House on the A127. The three-course meal is £24 per person. A non-refundable deposit of £10 per person will need to be paid by 5 October.
It looks like a great place: plenty of space, plenty of parking plus a disabled ramp for entry. We are sorry but there is no room for last minute bookings, hence why we are getting this out early. The initial non-refundable £10 deposit is to reserve your place. Payment in full will be required by 5 November to Tina at the club on Thursdays.

The Access card
The Access Card is a card like no other, we translate your disability / impairment into symbols which highlight the barriers you face and the reasonable adjustments you might need.
This then informs providers quickly and discreetly about the support you need and may gain you access to things like concessionary ticket prices and complex reasonable adjustments without having to go into loads of personal detail.
Its all based on your rights under the Equality Act and providers responsibilities.
All for just £15 for 3 years.
