Our online community

We welcome everyone to follow us on Facebook, TikTok and Instagram to keep up to date with MS Together, read stories from real people and learn about MS.

18-35's online community

Become a member of our online community and meet hundreds of other people living with MS.

We provide private Facebook groups for people with MS living in the UK and ROI, aged 18–35.

The idea of a private Facebook group is to enable members to connect with each other in an informal, yet safe way. Here, members can ask questions about MS, and other members who have lived similar experiences can share advice. You can also post anonymously, if you’d prefer.

To become a member of the Facebook groups, you must answer several questions and agree to our membership rules. This is to make sure that our MS Together community remains the safe and supportive place that it is.

We also give our members the opportunity to connect with others who live locally to them, so we’ve set up subgroups for different regions in the UK: South West, South East, West Midlands, East Midlands, Anglia, North West, Yorks & Humber, North East, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

Through these private groups, we organise national and regional virtual and in person social events for our community to attend. Visit our events page to find out more.
