Our Impact

All our work is inspired by our community. We work together for greater impact on the lives of people with MS.

Our vision is a world in which living a full and healthy life with MS is possible for everyone.

Our purpose is to enable everyone with MS to achieve optimal health by taking control of their health and wellbeing, through making informed lifestyle choices.

Overcoming MS is here for everyone with MS who wants to live a full and healthy life. As the world’s leading multiple sclerosis healthy lifestyle charity, we connect people with MS to a range of accessible, evidence-based information and services about beneficial lifestyle choices and to a supportive, like-minded community, helping people to follow the Overcoming MS Program and live well with MS.

Our difference: We give hope to people impacted by MS by raising awareness globally of the evidence-based impact of lifestyle on MS.

What we do: We act as a catalyst for change – we inform, support, empower and collaborate to provide the best ways to enable as many people as possible globally to follow the Overcoming MS Program and live well with MS.

Our impact: To deliver positive results in people’s physical and mental wellbeing and a belief in the impact of lifestyle on MS alongside medication.

Examples of what we do:

  • Inform people about lifestyle changes that can impact MS – through our website, digital content, social media, our information programme (including podcasts, webinars and blogs and by sharing books).
  • Support people impacted by MS – through our global network of Circles, through the Live Well Hub, and by responding to queries on social media and via email.
  • Empower people to live well with MS – through our campaigns and by inspiring them that change is possible.
  • Collaborate with others to increase our impact and with our community to understand what is needed and to co-create.
