Volunteer With Chronic Pain Ireland
Play a valuable part in Chronic Pain Ireland’s mission to create a greater understanding and awareness of those living with chronic pain in Ireland.
Our aim is to support, guide, educate and advocate for anyone living with the condition and their support network.
Chronic Pain Ireland receives a small amount of revenue from our members, donors, supporters and grant providers. It is through this generosity that Chronic Pain Ireland can continue to pursue its mission to be a unifying voice, whilst advocating for the needs of people living with chronic pain within the healthcare system and the wider community.
