MS and Work Peer Pod
The ‘MS and work’ Peer Pod is for those who are living with 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, to 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 7:30pm.
For more details, please contact our Peer Support Coordinator Vicky at firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet your host
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 RRMS a month after my daughter was born in 2006 and have had SPMS 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!
