Pain Concern provide information and support to people with pain and those who care for them, whether family, friends or healthcare professionals. We aim to raise awareness about pain and improve the provision of pain management services, through our policy and campaigning work. Our Airing Pain radio show is a series of audio podcasts featuring the experiences of those managing their everyday pain, and interviews with top, internationally- recognised experts. Our magazine Pain Matters contains news, features and comment on topics including self-management techniques, research into pain treatments, and personal experiences of living with pain. It is available in print and electronic form. We run a helpline staffed by volunteers, who provide information, support, or just a listening ear to people wanting to talk about their own pain or that of a family member or friend, and an online community on HealthUnlocked which provides members with a forum to share experiences. A free information pack on how to manage pain is available.
