Work with us

The MPS Society provides support to families affected by one of 25 rare, life limiting genetic conditions. We want all affected children and adults to know where to turn for specialist knowledge, support and advice.

About us

The MPS Society is the only registered UK charity providing professional support to individuals, families and professionals affected by MPS, Fabry and related diseases. These diseases are rare or ultra-rare and are both progressive and life limiting. Through our highly dedicated team we offer support throughout the UK that both informs and empowers the community we serve and that raises awareness of this disease group to a wider audience both nationally and internationally.

 

We offer flexibility in working hours, free on-site parking, 25 days (pro-rata) paid holiday per year and life insurance cover (subject to the conditions of the scheme)
