The Alan Bott Centre is a York based charity set up to help those with

multiple sclerosis and similar neurological conditions. The charity is named

after Alan Bott who was a member of the local MS branch for many years

and did much to enhance MS facilities in York, including the building of the

first MS Respite Care Centre to enhance MS facilities in York in 1990 (sadly

now closed 




The primary role of The Alan Bott Centre (ABC) is to assist in the provision of holidays with care through partnership with another charity – The Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) – using their two care hotels located in Rothbury Northumberland and Lytham St Annes on the Lancashire coast. This includes financial support.

The charity also provides transport to and from the holiday locations where ever possible at no charge. If ABC is unable to provide transport because of location, demand etc, a contribution towards transport costs is made.

Finally, the charity can provide funding support to people who qualify under the charity's objectives who organise their own holidays.
