Multiple Sclerosis Society of NZ

Multiple Sclerosis Society of NZ

MS Society of New Zealand was founded in 1967 and has worked since its inception to provide support and services for those affected by MS.


Our 18 Regional Offices employ Field Officers who are an integral part of the MS Society’s work. They provide the practical and emotional support and assistance to people with MS and along with the volunteers, are the backbone of the organisation, without them it would be impossible to function.

We have worked since 1967 to support, educate and advocate for people with MS and their support networks. We have educated the general public, employers and health professionals about MS and actively encouraged on-going medical research to find the cause and a cure for multiple sclerosis.

More about us

MSNZ exists to provide on-going support, education and advocacy for people with MS and their support networks. While MS is a chronic condition which, for many, with the right support can be managed. Our aim is to ensure that wherever you are in the country you have access to a high level of information and support.

MS is a very misunderstood and unknown condition and we aim to raise awareness, change attitudes and work to build an environment that does not present barriers for people with chronic conditions such as MS.

MSNZ is the national voice of the MS Community standing up for the rights of those affected, liaising with allied organisations and government bodies to ensure policies concerning people with MS receive considered input from those affected.

MSNZ provides information resources to our 18 Regional Societies around the country free-of-charge to be provided to people looking for information about MS in their communities. We also provide annual training for our Field Workers, who are employed by their regional societies, across the country.

Both the cause and cure of MS are currently unknown but we exist to fund, support and promote research nationally and globally.
