Welcome to the Samson Centre, and thank you for your interest in us.
The Samson Centre was set up for people with MS, by people with MS. We provide essential services, not available through the NHS and without government funding, that help our members live the best life they can with MS.
At the Samson Centre, if it needs doing, we just get on and do it. So we ran our first physiotherapy services in a village hall and our original oxygen chamber was installed and operated in the garage of one of our volunteers.
This ‘can do’ approach of our founding members (of whom I remain in awe) then saw us jointly raise funding for, build and move into our current home, the Guildford Waterside Centre, which we share with a number of local sports clubs and societies.
We have recently substantially expanded our oxygen therapy facilities, showing that the Samson Centre’s desire to move mountains in support of people living with MS remains undimmed.
Today the Samson Centre has over 250 users of all ages. The Centre offers specialist physiotherapy sessions, exercise classes, a state of the art gym as well as oxygen therapy.
Beyond the practical support we provide, the Samson Centre also plays an important social role – it’s a place where people with MS and their carers can meet, spend time and support each other. Those who join the Centre are part of a friendly and welcoming community. We provide a safe place where people with MS can share and support each other, as well as carers, friends and loved ones.
Like many charities, we are dependent on funding and the support of our hard-working volunteers as well as our dedicated professional staff.
If you or a loved one have MS, or are interested in how you can be involved in what the Samson Centre does, please get in touch.
