We can accept referrals for people living in Northern Ireland with a range of long term conditions and persistent pain. Our courses focus on the impacts of living with pain, not the individual conditions.

We offer a range of self-management courses which are delivered by trained volunteer tutors who live with pain themselves. Covering topics such as getting better sleep, gentle physical activity, managing difficult emotions, getting the most out of medical appointments, problem solving as well as many more, the courses help patients to build up their own toolbox to enable them to take control of their condition.
