MS and Work Peer Pod

The ‘MS and Work’ Peer Pod is for those who are living with multiple sclerosis (MS) and still working, in whatever profession.

Work-life balance is important for everyone and working with a long-term health condition can be challenging, so this pod aims to provide a space where people can connect for mutual support and encouragement, share tips and strategies for coping well in the workplace and generally chat with others who understand.

This pod is hosted by our volunteer Glenda and is held fortnightly on a Wednesday at 7pm (starting on 21 September).

For more details, please contact our Peer Support Coordinator Vicky at peersupport@ms-uk.org

Meet your host

Glenda with chick

Hi, I’m Glenda and I live in Wiltshire with my husband and three teenagers (fondly known as the ‘threenagers’). I am a full-time wheelchair user and full-time Head of Services for a local sight loss charity. I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS a month after my daughter was born in 2006 and have had secondary progressive MS since 2019.  After telling my MS-UK counsellor that I wanted to meet others who were still working, I swiftly found myself talking about an idea for a new peer pod – and well here I am!

I’m excited to meet you all!
