About us

Who we are

We are the Leicestershire Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Centre. Since 1985, trustees have been running the charity, some of whom have MS themselves.

They know how lonely and isolated it can feel to have MS or similar illnesses so they’re here to provide help and assistance to others.

What is MS?

MS is a chronic, typically progressive, disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.

Symptoms of MS include numbness, impairment of speech, muscular co-ordination, blurred vision and severe fatigue.

It is estimated that there are more than 100,000 people diagnosed with MS in the UK.

What we do

We provide support for people living with MS or similar illnesses through oxygen therapy, holistic therapy and physiotherapy.

As well as physical treatment, we’re also here to support the mental wellbeing of those with MS or similar illnesses. During our opening times, we welcome anyone in for a coffee and a chat.

“For the past couple of months I have been a full-time volunteer at MS therapy center while also job hunting and preparing for MSc osteopathy course. I absolutely love working here because this place not only improved my therapy knowledge and experience but also important life skills such as communication, punctuality, commitments leadership. The best part is the group physio sessions 3 times a week which I help run. 2 out of 3 sessions focuses on upper body strength and endurance and one focuses on lower body strength and endurance.
It is a pleasure working with the patients at the center. It has definitely challenged my knowledge and expereince in the matter. I take this forward onto my upcoming journey of the future where I will continue gaining expereince here, complete my MSc osteopathy pre-registration course and work alongside.
Thank you so much to everyone at the center staff, volunteers and patients for treating me with respect and for your cooperation.” 

“Just wanted to let you know that I’ve got a place at Warwick University to study Medicine, starting in September! The independence and positive feedback you gave me throughout my placement definitely encouraged me to apply (also gave me lots to talk about at interview!).
Thanks for everything”
