"Our aims

Addressing methods to help boost self-esteem and well-being of disabled people (and individuals with long-term health conditions) enabling them to play as active roles in society as possible is a ‘monumental’ and diverse task.

MASIS cannot address all issues, but as a result of links established with numerous charities as well as government departments and organisations, MASIS knows the people who can provide expert disability information and support."
