The Hope Programme for MS

Approx 2 hours a week

Wednesday, 6 March 2024

A 6-week online course completed at your own pace

Are you living with MS? This is a FREE self-management online course to help enhance your resilience, rediscover strengths and increase your ability to cope.


Hope for the Community is running a group self-management programme for people living with MS to improve their wellbeing. The programme was co-created with people living with MS, healthcare professionals and researchers at Coventry University to make sure it is rooted in science.


What will the programme involve?

You will be asked to enrol on a 6 week online Hope Programme. It focuses on you and your wellbeing.


  • Learn whenever you like, at a pace that suits you. Please note that the programme is not delivered in a way for people to be on at the same time. It takes about 2 hours to go through the materials each week, but you can do this at your own pace and time that suits. Some people do chunks of 20mins, some people do more or less whenever they can find the time.

  • Learn wherever you like. You can access the programme on desktop, tablet or smartphone. You will require an internet connection to complete it.

  • You can learn whatever you like. If you do not enjoy some of the content or activities, just skip it or bookmark it and come back to it later.

  • Share and learn from each other. We all have a story to share and we learn best with others. If you want to, make sure you join in the page discussions, forum topics, and by liking and commenting on others posts.


Each week the programme covers topics like:


  • mindfulness

  • fatigue management

  • goal setting

  • stress management

  • identify personal strengths

  • dealing with setbacks

  • managing unhelpful beliefs

  • healthy eating


The programme includes quizzes, worksheets, audio and video materials, interactive activities and social networking via email and forums. There will also be a mindfulness session and an opportunity for the group to come safely together online. You will be supported throughout by trained facilitators who live with MS.


The programme can be accessed from PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. The programme is not delivered in a way for people to be on at the same time. You will have access to the programme 24/7. It takes about 2 hours to go through the materials each week, but you can do this at your own pace and time that suits. The programme is delivered to people living with MS around the country and many have found it has helped them to feel better and improved their quality of life.
