South Side House

In July 2017, MSRRF purchased South Side House, with the intention of developing a Physiotherapy Centre for people with MS in the north east of England.

South Side House was a residential property, as such planning permission was obtained on 22nd June 2018 to change the use of the property to a D1 non-residential institution.


A physiotherapist can work with people with MS providing tailored exercise and physical activity advice with the aim of helping improve movement and other functions of the body.


Your support and donations mean the world to us and the people affected by MS that we support. Find out how to donate here.

As South Side House is currently a residential property it will require slight modifications to meet the requirements of the Charity. The remodelling will include, but not be limited to:

  • additional car parking;
  • new DDA compliant entrance door from the car park;
  • level access throughout all of the ground floor;
  • internal modifications to accommodate physiotherapy, waiting area, reception and DDA compliant toilet facilities, all to the ground floor; and
  • remove conservatory and replace with an orangery, in order to increase temperature control for ??? room.

The Trustees have appointed the contractors and the necessary work has started, the slideshow below will be used to show how the building is being modified, this will be updated throughout the redevelopment.

New equipment!!!!

MSRRF are reviewing a few different pieces of equipment which utilised the latest technology and have been shown to benefit people with MS.


MSRRF have been supported by many people and organisations in order to provide this new and exciting service to people with MS in the North East of England, as such we would like to say special thanks to:

  • Everyone who has supported our hydrotherapy appeal since 200?, which enabled the start of this project
