About MSWA

A hero image for the page About MSWA.

MSWA provides vital support and services to people living with all neurological conditions in Western Australia. This includes people living with multiple sclerosis (MS), 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 in 1972 by a group of people with MS committed to helping others access information and support.

Today, MSWA has a team of over 800 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 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 into neurological conditions.

MSWA plays a vital role in educating the broader community, liaising with government and other relevant bodies on related issues, and advocating for the rights of all people with neurological conditions and disability in general.
