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.

On 19th October at the TA Centre, we will be running a cake morning for McMillan.   We are sure this charity is close to a lot of people’s hearts , so we would like to raise as much money for them as possible.  Please try to pop in for good conversation, cake, and a reason to support this amazing charity that have helped so many of us with love ones we have lost and loved ones still fighting this horrible disease.  Hope to see you there.

 

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.

  1. If any of the people who attend the club on Thursday morning would like to write a little some thing about themselves, how they enjoy the club, how they are feeling – low, tearful, happy – and how coming to club helps them, then we can add it to the blog/section. It would be really nice to see how others still manage have a life with MS.
