MS Society looks for Nanaimo volunteers to offer peer support

Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada asks for help with its one-to-one support program

The MS Society is looking for people who are at a place in their own experience with MS where they feel they can effectively support others.

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is hoping to find volunteers who are living with MS or are caregivers of people with MS who can help with the society’s one-to-one peer support program. The telephone- and internet-based program is in need of volunteers 18 or older who have been diagnosed with MS or are a caregiver for someone living with MS. The society is asking for a one-year minimum commitment.

For more information, e-mail Julia.zougas@mssociety.ca.
