Community Service card holders and MS Auckland members can apply for MS Auckland exercise support fund.

MS Auckland recognises financial barriers to some of our members accessing appropriate exercise. The Hardship Fund for Exercise has been established to help make specialised exercise programmes more attainable for our members. Successful applicants will have their selected exercise programmes supplemented by 50% for the following six months. This involves the member paying 50% of the programme, to the provider, up-front, and the provider will invoice MS Auckland for the remaining 50%.

Funding applications are available for January – June and July – December.

Current list of classes for which funding is available.

MS Auckland may subsidise the cost of attending one of the following classes per member every 6 months. Please get in touch with the provider before attending, as the information below is true at the time of publishing.
