Organisation aims and objectives

Pain Concern is a charity providing information and support to people with pain and those who care for them, whether family, friends or healthcare professionals. For over 7 million people in the UK living with persistent pain is a part of everyday life. Although there is usually no cure, people who receive the appropriate treatment, information and support can manage their condition effectively. We provide a quarterly magazine, Pain Matters, and that people can email subs@painconcern.org.uk, for a free trial subscription for a year.
