Multiple sclerosis charity appoints new chief


The multiple sclerosis charity the MS Trust has promoted Lucy Taylor to chief executive.

Taylor, who has spent the past three years as the charity’s director of fundraising and marketing, will succeed David Martin, who is retiring after six years in the role.

Before joining the MS Trust, Taylor held roles at charities including the RNIB, Mencap and the Alzheimer’s Society.

She is a board member of the Neurological Alliance, which is a coalition of more than 90 organisations that work to improve treatment, care and support for people affected by neurological conditions.

Caitlin Sorrell, chair of the MS Trust, said: “Lucy’s extensive charity background, coupled with her deep understanding of the MS Trust, is an invaluable asset.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have her on board as our new CEO and to work alongside her to continue the MS Trust’s mission of making sense of MS for everyone in the UK who is impacted by this disease.”

Taylor said: “I am intensely proud of the work that the MS Trust does to make a real difference to the lives of people with MS, through its trusted information, and unique health professional placement and education programmes.

“I’m delighted to be taking on this new role at such an important time for the organisation and looking forward to being able to take the charity from strength to strength.”

Taylor will take up her new role at the start of the charity’s annual conference, which begins on 17 March.

The charity supports and trains multiple sclerosis health professionals and specialist nurses and provides information and support to people who want to know more about the condition.

It had an income of £2.3m in the year to the end of July 2023 and employs 34 people, according to the charity’s most recent accounts filed with the Charity Commission.
