We are dedicated to reducing the social and other barriers to living with chronic pain.We are a group of people who are tired of the way things are for people in pain. You may be feeling quite isolated and ‘over it’ and feel that no one really understands your experience. You might even feel that people don’t believe you. Many people tell us about these experiences. Don’t despair, you aren’t crazy! And you aren’t on your own either. Over the years many volunteers have strengthened us so that we can work towards greater community understanding about chronic pain…
To reduce the unnecessary suffering and isolation caused by chronic pain in the Australian community..
No Australian living with persistent pain should suffer alone or without access to resources and information which help them effectively manage their pain in a manner promoting dignity and self respect, regardless of age, gender, culture, belief, socio-economic or compensation status.
