Sunday Drop-in Peer Pod

MS-UK’s Peer Support service is dedicated to providing support to anyone living with multiple sclerosis (MS). Our Peer Pods provide a safe and friendly online space for people to connect with others for conversation, companionship, and mutual peer support.

Since the development of the service early last year, we have seen this community continue to grow and it has been a real pleasure to see what a difference these new support networks and friendships are making to those that attend.

Up until now, we have run a variety of pods at various times and days throughout the week, but we realise that MS doesn’t just stop at weekends – indeed, it’s at this time that you may feel particularly lonely – so we are delighted to announce that we have now created a Sunday Drop-in pod that will run every week at 2pm.

As with our other Drop-in pods, this will be a space where you can speak openly and freely about anything that matters to you, whether MS related or not, with others that completely understand.

The first session will be held on Sunday 04 December at 2pm and if you would like details for this or any other peer pod, please contact our Peer Support Coordinator Vicky at peersupport@ms-uk.org.

Meet the Sunday Drop-in host!

Hi, I’m Rory and I live in Suffolk. After 4 years of being treated for “Sports related injuries” I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS in 2014, this has since been amended to ‘Active PPMS’. I work from home on a full-time basis as an Analyst for a Financial organisation. I married my wife in 2017 after meeting in a modern way via Match.com in 2016.  Between us, we have 5 children and 4 grandchildren. In my spare time, I am very heavily involved in both parkrun and junior parkrun which takes up most of my Saturday and Sunday mornings as well as some time during the week!

I am looking forward to hosting a weekend Peer Pod and bringing this fantastic community initiative to both existing and new Peer Pod participants.
