With your help we can provide more services and support to those living with chronic pain conditions. So please get together with your friends and family to help and ensure that no one has to suffer alone!
Your time, effort, and contributions will enable us to provide support service to people and their families who are affected by chronic pain and the impact it has on every aspect of their lives.
Every year Chronic Pain Ireland supports hundreds of people and with your help we hope to reach out to the many thousands of people who are struggling. Recent statistics show that 13% of the Irish population are affected by pain and of that number 89% feel that they cannot speak to family members or friends about their condition.1
Chronic Pain Ireland is a registered charity and receives SSNO funding which covers the cost of our part-time administrator. We are very grateful to SSNO funding and the ongoing support of Pobal and the Department of Rural and Community Development under the Programme and Scheme to Support National Organisations (SSNO) 2019-2022.
While we are delighted to be receive this support we are heavily reliant on donations from our members and the public to cover all our support services which includes our telephone support line a vital link for so many who feel alone. In 2020 we moved to providing online supports as our it was unsafe to hold workshops, public awareness events and talks.
If you can help, please get in touch.
