Support Groups

A lot of people with Multiple Sclerosis get benefit from talking to others in the same boat. This isn't everyone's cup of tea but you can pick up lots of ideas from those who may be experiencing the same symptoms as you or who may have found a good way of managing their condition. It can also be good to just talk to others who understand what it is like to live with MS.

We know of four "official" support groups in Moray but there are other informal networks:

The Moray MS Support Group meets every month at the Oaks in Elgin. For information about the Oaks click HERE . The meetings are on the 2nd Friday of every month from 11.00am to 1.00pm. 

This group is informal but has been meeting for more than six years. There are opportunities to share ideas, news and experiences and we often have speakers of interest to the group. Recent speakers have covered topics such as welfare benefits, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and bladder issues.

This website is the brainchild of group members!

The Group meets on the second Friday of every month from 11.00am - 1.00pm.  If you want to know more about this group and whether it might be right for you, contact the MS Specialist Nurse.

You can find the Oaks here....

If meeting on Fridays or during the day doesn't suit you, a group which met in the evening might be a good idea. If this attracts you contact the MS Specialist Nurse.

If transport is a problem for you, other group members may be able to help. We also have a wee kitty that can help to subsidise taxis for those with mobility problems and without their own car. Again speak to the MS Nurse about this or Contact Us at the website.

You can also browse the Grampian Caredata website HERE  for information about other relevant groups in the Moray area.
