About Pain Concern
Pain Concern is a charity working to support and inform people with pain and those who care for them, whether family, friends or healthcare professionals. All pain is unpleasant, but for the 7.8 million people in the UK living with long-term pain it is a part of everyday life. It diminishes quality of life more than any other condition, leading often to loss of work, depression and disability. Anyone at any age can develop persistent pain and you will very probably know somebody affected.

Although there is usually no cure, people who receive the appropriate treatment, information and support can manage their condition effectively with life-changing results. Pain Concern works to improve the lives of people in pain by:

•Producing information on pain using a variety of media platforms, including a radio show, magazine, website and leaflets.
•Providing support to people with pain and those who care for them through our helpline, forum and community pain education sessions.
•Raising awareness about pain and campaigning to improve the provision of pain management services.
