About this cause
We're a positive and inclusive support group for people with Fibromyalgia and CFS/ME. We focus on a healthy lifestyle, mind/body exercise and emotional support, helping members accept and manage their illness. We run a weekly bespoke programme with a wide variety of activities to help maintain both physical and mental wellbeing. We also run a 'Falls Prevention' programme open to the community.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Fibromyalgia and CFS/ME do not discriminate. Our members are diverse and have come together to seek and offer support by sharing positive experiences and find solace in mutual understanding. The Space to Think project helps members explore all aspects of mental wellness, building confidence and resilience, putting less strain on local NHS services and increasing positive community activities.
