We hope you find our site interesting and informative. This website contains information about our group and what we do, along with information about Fibromyalgia to help people diagnosed, and their families and supporters, to understand the condition. Read on and contact us to learn how you can become part of the group.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
We are a non-profit making Registered Charity that is run voluntarily by its members and committee who either suffer from Fibromyalgia or are carers. Our president as of September 2017 is Alex Easton.
The group holds formal meetings each month, normally with a speaker on a topic relevant to the group. We also meet for coffee and a chat each month. The group runs a variety of weekly activities and organise outings and lunches for members and their carers. We also run a few annual fundraising events.
We produce our own information leaflets and provide free information packs to all enquiries to our Helpline. We have a lending library with books on Fibromyalgia and related health topics, along with many free information leaflets on a variety of topics. We send out a quarterly newsletter and supply free information to medical and health professionals in the area.
Currently our group is comprised of two membership types; Support Group & Facebook.
Support Group Members pay an annual subscription and may participate in all Group Activities
Facebook members meet on Facebook and may join us at our Tuesday Coffee meeting. Our Facebook page is a closed group, to join you need to have a Facebook account.
