Mission Statement

The Hawkes Bay Multiple Sclerosis Society is committed to the co-ordination of services appropriate to the individual needs of the people with Multiple Sclerosis and other Neurological disorders and their family/whanau

 

The Hawkes Bay Multiple Sclerosis Society came into being in 1975. People who were diagnosed with MS and their families spent many hours fundraising by many means to purchase MS House which was based in Austin Street. The Society remained at Austin Street until March 2012 when the building was sold.

The Society provides peer support groups, gives information and knowledge about MS to clients and their families and the wider community. Support groups include our Monday group which meets every second Monday, monthly coffee mornings in Napier, Hastings and Central Hawkes Bay.

If you want any information regarding groups run by the Society, email or phone us at the addresses on our “Team Page”
