About the Centre

Our Story

Swindon Therapy Centre for Multiple Sclerosis was founded initially in 1981 as a self-help group, became a registered charity in 1983 and has steadily grown into the wonderful community that all associated with it are so proud of today. Since 2010, we have been based in Bradbury House, Westmead, and during 2016 and 2017 we’ve undertaken extensive work to acquire the freehold of our premises, double the size of our facility, increase our range of therapies and services and build up our membership. Our work continues!

Our Purpose

We aim to become the most significant healthcare provider, outside of the NHS, for those who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neurological conditions, living within a 35-mile radius of Swindon.We seek to improve quality of life for our members by providing support in a well-equipped, open, caring environment where we:

help to alleviate feelings of isolation and helplessness

help to minimise the progression of MS and other neurological conditions through a range of therapies

offer support services that enable our members and carers

promote self-help and encourage a positive attitude

Our Values and Principles

Our values and principles are rooted in our respect for people.

We are dedicated to our role of providing support for those with MS and other neurological conditions as well as being there to support carers and family members.

We are passionate about helping our members to improve their quality of life.

We believe that a ‘self-help approach’ is key to improving quality of life and independence and we encourage and support our members and volunteers in this approach.

We believe that our capability and capacity to listen and understand are essential skills.

We are committed to working with the primary healthcare sector and business community to achieve our aims.

And, above all, we enjoy celebrating and sharing our successes.

What do our members say?

The Centre enables people with MS to “meet people who understand the condition and be themselves” and how everyone was “on the same wave-length.”

"There's always somebody you can talk to. It's a bit like a family, everyone's so friendly. You don't feel like you want to walk in and walk out again. Everybody talks to you. Everybody supports everybody else."
