Please support our joint application with Pain Association Scotland to the Aviva Community Fund, to run a pain management course for carers in Perth – voting is now OPEN.
Our project will help carers living with persistent pain to cope better. According to the charity Backcare, over 70% of unpaid carers in the UK suffer from back pain and have a greater risk of developing chronic pain than non-carers. Learning in a group will reduce social isolation and foster peer support.
Shared group wisdom is complemented with evidence-based content. Participants are encouraged to explore, practice and gain confidence applying the self-management skills known to be effective in reducing the social and psychological impacts of pain. Helping carers to take control of their pain experience rather than being controlled by it, will improve their health and wellbeing, quality of life and their relationships with the people around them, reduce anxiety levels and the risks of developing chronic pain and depression.
It only takes a few minutes to register for an Aviva Account to vote and you have up to 10 votes!! Every vote counts so please share this with your friends and family too!
