Multiple Sclerosis New Zealand

Here at Multiple Sclerosis New Zealand we are passionate about supporting the 4000 New Zealanders nationwide to have access to the best information, services, treatments and supports they need to live well with their diagnosis, maintaining and improving their life-long brain health.

Since 1967, MSNZ has been supporting our members, 18 independent Regional Societies, to meet the needs of people with MS, their families and carers through national leadership, advocacy, communication, and national and international collaboration.

Our organisation

  • Advocates on national issues impacting the wider MS community. Recent focusses have included widening access to highly effective treatments and improving access to vital services for earlier diagnosis and improved life-long condition management.
  • Raises awareness for Multiple Sclerosis as a chronic condition affecting New Zealanders and highlighting the needs of those impacted by the condition
  • Provides free to access information on understanding, managing and living well with MS
  • Offers a free helpline and online tools to connect those looking for support with their local providers
  • Funds scholarships to keep people with MS in paid employment
  • Supports 18 independent member organisations with operational and governance needs
  • Provides leadership to model best practice to improve outcomes for people with MS
  • Organises educational training opportunities for member support staff providing community-based services for people living with MS
  • Works collaboratively with relevant partners to identify and develop tools to support self-management of Multiple Sclerosis
  • Collaborates with other organisations to increase opportunities for positive engagement and living well with MS
