MS Advisory Councils
About the Councils
We have four MS Advisory Councils, representing Tasmania, ACT, NSW and Victoria.
Their mission is to represent the needs and views of the MS community to the MS Board to help them provide the most relevant and effective services possible. They are completely independent from the MS organisation.
The Council members are made up of people affected by multiple sclerosis, both people living with the disease and carers.
The Councils try to reach out to as many people in the MS community as possible - through their networks, via social media and through any other opportunities that arise.
The Councils undertake projects on topics of importance and relevance to the MS community, and provide specific input to the Board when each project is completed.
Please get in touch and let the councils know what’s important to you!
