Every person's journey with MS is different. At MSSANT, we take your individual circumstances into account, and tailor our advice and information to suit your needs.

MS Assist

MS Assist is a dedicated telephone information service that will provide people with MS, their families, carers, other professionals and the general public access to a wide range of information relating to community, private and government services that can assist you.

We recognise that not everyone has access to the internet and sometimes you might have a quick question or need a bit of advice as to where to go for a particular issue. Well, this is where our information service can help! If we can’t give you the information you need straight away, we will research it and get back to you within 24 hours. You do not need to be a Client of the Society to access this service – it is free and available to everyone.

MS Assist can help you with information such as:

  • Transport options in your area
  • Centrelink processes and forms
  • Local Council and State Government services in your area
  • MS Society services
  • Continence support services
  • Research updates
  • List of Neurologists in SA
  • And much, much more

Our free call MS Assist number is 1800 812 311.

Please Note: Calls to 1800 numbers from a landline are free, however some Mobile Phone Services may charge for these calls so check with your provider first.

The telephone information service will operate during business hours Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays. Callers may leave a message outside these times and our operators will return their call on the next business day.

Peer Support

Join a peer support group and talk to others who understand

Our MS Peer Support groups in metropolitan and regional SA, and Darwin help to bring people with MS together to meet with others who are sharing similar experiences. Meeting at least once a month these groups come together to share their feelings and experiences, offer support and advice, and promote friendship and community spirit.

Most groups function independently from the MS Society, and are a great way to meet new people, socialise, and learn more about MS.

People with MS, and families and carers also have 24-hour access to peer support at their fingertips with our private Facebook groups.

See the Peer Support Calendar below for details of groups meeting in your area. To update your Peer Support group details, please contact MS Assist.
