For over 30 years, the Association has been providing self-management groups for people living with chronic pain.

Over that time, people participating in the groups have been confirmed that living with persistent pain impacts on their lives. It affects both their health and wellbeing as well as relationships with family, friends and work colleagues.

People report experiencing isolation, stress, depression, poor mobility, lowered self-esteem, fatigue and an increased use of medication.

The groups provide support and an opportunity to develop the skills in self-management that can help you address some of these problems.

In order to provide equity of service we are providing a mixture of both on-line and face-to-face sessions. Due to COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, some of the scheduled face-to-face meetings may need to be online due to the venues not being available. People are asked to please check our website and social media for the latest updates.

If you would like more information or have any further queries, please phone our Free phone enquiry number on 0800 783 6059.
