Your Pain Is Our Priority

Chronic Pain Ireland is a charity that supports, educates and advocates for people with chronic pain.

Chronic pain is a complex, multi-faceted disease that prevents people from enjoying a full life

A lack of understanding within the healthcare system and society only compounds the physical and emotional distress caused by persistent pain.

Many people live with pain for years before they get a proper diagnosis.


If you have been diagnosed with chronic pain and need support, call our helpline
