Welcome to Calderdale MS Group
Who are We
Calderdale MS Group is the local group of the MS Society. We are a group that endeavours to support people living with MS and their families throughout the Calderdale Area . We are run by volunteers and fundraise locally
There is no better way of making friends than with a drink of coffee or tea in one hand and a nice sticky bun nestling close by. The local group hosts two regular monthly get-togethers for those people in Calderdale who live with MS along with their friends, families and carer's.
TEA SARNIES & A NATTER
Our long established monthly get together is on the last Wednesday of every month between 12 and 2pm. On occasion we will invite along speakers/people of interest but it's far more about the chat . Tea, coffee, sandwiches and biscuits/cakes are provided free of charge. For any new attendees the address is Pellon Social Club, Moor End Rd, Pellon, Halifax HX2 0HA . If you would like to be met at the
door please contact us and let us know and one of the coordinating team will be happy to ensure you feel comfortable .
COFFEE WITH FRIENDS
Our version of a coffee morning is held in the cafe in Shibden Park which is an excellent venue with free parking for Blue Badge holders.
Coffee or tea and cake are provided free to all who attend. The event is monthly, generally the second Monday of the month. You can check dates through Facebook or our website.
It is now a well established fact that gentle exercise can help alleviate MS related symptoms and can aid individual mobility. Since their introduction in 2018 our local group exercise classes have proved popular and theraputic to those who attend.
Due to the popularity of the online Zoom exercise classes during lockdown, the local group thought that it made sense to keep one of the classes online and one to return to the face to face format that was prelockdown. Therefore giving local people with MS a choice they feel comfortable with. Either the opportunity to be able to exercise in the comfort of their own home or to be able to see others in a face to face environment. People are welcome to participate in both the Zoom and face to face classes.
You can find details of our classes in the events section of this website
Information and Support
One of the things that people affected by MS want most is accurate and up-to-date information about the condition itself, about living with MS and what help is available. The local group has several stands throughout Calderdale that provide leaflets that cover a wide variety of subjects related to Living with MS.
We also periodically run information events for people newly diagnosed . Our trained support team offer friendly advice about living with MS and can help put you in touch with other local services who can provide additional support and advice
MS can put pressure on many different aspects of your life, including your bank balance. Our grants can ease some of that pressure by helping to pay for items that make living with MS a little easier.
The local group always endeavours to ensure money raised locally is spent locally to support those living with MS throughout the Calderdale Community and some of the funds raised locally are awarded in grants.
The Society is there for all people whose lives are affected by MS so carers can also apply for grants.
Our Support Volunteers will help and
support you through the entire application process from start to finish.
