There are MS Societies in all States of Australia. These State Societies provide information and education for people with MS, families, carers and health professionals as well as the general community. They promote awareness of MS, and raise funds for research and service provision. They also provide support services such as the Immunotherapy Support Programs whereby MS Society nurses give information regarding the immune-modulating drugs, teach self-injection techniques, and offer ongoing support and advice in the management of any side effects.

MS Australia represents the national interests of people with MS, promotes and funds research and produces the quarterly magazine 'MS Life'.
