Depending on how you interact with us, we may collect your contact details, health history, occupation or other information that’s relevant to your situation. We may also collect information about your communication preferences, such as whether you want to receive information about MS Plus or our services, events or fundraising activities.

Our team members and volunteers understand and respect your right to privacy. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is protected from:

  • misuse
  • loss
  • interference

Your rights and responsibilities

When you engage with us, you have a right to be treated with respect and dignity. We also ask that you treat our staff, volunteers and other people in our community with the same kindness.

You can learn more about your rights and responsibilities in our fact sheet.

Advocating for your rights

There may be times where our clients and those we support need someone to speak on their behalf. This is where an advocate can help. An advocate can be a family member, friend or a person from an external organisation.

We encourage you to use an advocate when you need help negotiating with us or the service system. We can help you access an advocate if you need one. You can ask for an advocate by contacting us and we can refer you to an external advocacy organisation.
