2019 MS Empower Grants announcement

10th December 2019

People living with MS have received the exciting news that they will receive a portion of over $10,000 worth of grants towards essential items or services thanks to MS Society SA & NT’s MS Empower Grants.

In a new initiative for 2019, a portion of funds raised from the MS Game Changer Lottery have been used to fund grants to support ten individuals living with MS. Applications for the MS Empower Grants opened in October and the MS Society had since received almost 70 applications before the closing date on 25 November.

For the successful applicants the grants will fund equipment, home modifications, support services, household items and utilities, or activities that will help them to live their best life possible with MS.

The 2019 MS Empower Grants recipients were thoughtfully chosen by a panel of allied health and disability sector professionals from the MS Society based on the selection criteria. Long-term positive impact on quality of life was just one of the considerations during the selection process.

Congratulations to our 2019 MS Empower Grants recipients: Diana, Janet, Judy, Maggie, Valerie, Annie, Colina, Shirley, Suzanne and Cate. All recipients have been contacted.
