Information concerning the way we were formed and the history

We were formed in June 2003, the majority of our members were the user group of another charity who had an out-reach branch in Wigan, in December 2003 they decided to close the branch and vacate the premises. With a desire to continue, a number of the members of the user group decided to form their own MS charity and they have succeeded.  Providing therapies such as Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Yoga, Indian Head Massage, Hopi Ear Candles and also Reiki.

We started the work of the charity on the 5th of January 2004 in Sunshine House Community Centre, but unfortunately we had to relocate to the Ince Community Centre from the 1st August 2005 providing therapies twice a week on Wednesday and Thursday  mornings.

Although the therapies are important we feel the support and social interaction aspect of the charity is vital to enable people to build the confidence to get on with life with MS.  We endeavour to find out any information that may be required, or if they have any concerns we will try to point them in the right direction to the people who can help, quite often it is simply talking amongst like-minded people that allays their fears, and one of the most important aspects of the charity is humour, we will if we can, send you home with a smile on your face.

As of 1st September 2010, We relocated to Marsh Green Community Centre to offer a dedicated area for the therapies to be carried out and the opportunity for the charity to generate revenue and expand to fulfil it's aims.

In the later part of 2016 we changed our name to Wigan MS Therapy Centre Ltd.  We still offer a variety of therapies and social opportunities.
