Being part of the MS community is a good way to find support and develop friendships with people who understand what you're experiencing and going through. Once you have joined you will receive information on events, both social and fundraising. It is entirely your choice as to whether you join in or not, but being a member does give you the opportunity to talk, if you want to, about your MS to others in a similar position.
Once you become a member you will receive our quarterly newsletters which contains information about the Guernsey MS Community, with details on planned events. This will either be via an email attachment or the post, you can choose. You will also receive a quarterly magazine called MS Matters, from the UK, which is full of the latest research and stories from other people living with MS.
Becoming a member of the MS Society brings many benefits, one of which is being eligible to receive a discount at many establishments on Guernsey. Once you have joined the society you will receive a membership card and on production of this, at certain businesses, you will receive your discount. This is an ongoing scheme to which we hope to add more discounts in the future for you. Click to see a full list of discounts currently available.
All this is just at a cost of £5.00 per year (payable to MS UK - see below).
