  1. The Disabled Workers Co-operative is a registered charity that helps disabled people to help themselves. Our aim is twofold - to raise the independence of disabled people (for those that want it) by enabling them to take an active role in the economy and achieve a greater sense of self-worth and also to raise awareness of the contribution that disabled people can make to society.

    The Disabled Workers Co-operative receives no central or government funds and is dependent on donations to keep its projects going.

    On-line database of the skills, services and products disabled people have to offer. Disabled individuals and companies or organisations employing a significant number of disabled people in meaningful employment are able to register the skills, products or services they have to offer FREE on the Disabled Workers Database. The Database is FREE for anyone to use.

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
