MSWA provides vital support and services to people living with neurological conditions in Western Australia. This includes people living with multiple sclerosis, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Motor Neurone Disease, and acquired Brain Injury, to name a few.
MSWA, formerly known as The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Western Australia, was formed nearly 45 years ago by a group of people with MS committed to helping others access information and support.
Today, MSWA has a team of over 600 staff who all work passionately to provide the best possible care to people right across the metro area and regional centres of Western Australia.
MSWA is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation. The money we raise through our fundraising efforts, government grants and other income generating programs goes directly to providing a range of supports and services to people living with MS and all neurological conditions.
Our team of experienced nursing and allied health professionals provide information and a range of supports from the time of diagnosis. All MSWA programs are delivered in accordance with both the Disability Service Standards and our own service standards. In addition to our direct care services, we also provide funding for vital research projects. Over the last 10 years MSWA has invested $10.9 million to fund research into finding the cause, better treatments and a cure for MS and all neurological conditions.
Vision - to be the leading service organisation for people with MS and the service provider of choice for NDIS participants with both MS and other neurological conditions in WA.
