To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis (MS).
Answered by: Aileen Campbell 16 October 2017
Scottish Government works closely with third sector organisations to raise awareness of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We have provided funding to the MS Society Scotland this year to support a project aimed at boosting and promoting physical activity in people with MS which is the first of its kind in Scotland. Last year funding was also provided to Revive MS Support towards the development of their new facility at Moorpark Court in Glasgow.
We are currently in the early stages of developing Scotland’s first National Action Plan on Neurological Conditions, which will aim to raise awareness and drive improvements in outcomes for people with a range of neurological conditions including MS.
