The MPS Society’s support and advocacy team is at the core of everything the charity delivers. It provides a unique, flexible and wide-ranging support service to its members from the point of diagnosis.
The rarity of MPS, Fabry and related diseases means affected individuals and their families often experience difficulties accessing support services in their local areas.
Our experienced and skilled team works closely with individuals and their families as well as with health, social care and educational professionals to make sure the needs of our members always come first.
All our support officers are trained in MPS, Fabry and related diseases and are DBS checked.
