Action on Pain
PainLine: 0845 603 1593
Action on Pain was formed in 1998 with the aims of providing support and advice for people who are affected by chronic pain. Run entirely by volunteers many of whom either have or are affected by chronic pain we promote the positive side of living with chronic pain. Our friendly "down to earth" approach is appreciated by many which has helped the charity become a major national and international organisation which still retains the "simple and informal" approach to helping people.
The Pain Toolkit
A persistent pain problem can be difficult to understand and manage on an everyday basis. The Pain Toolkit is a simple information booklet that could provide you with some handy tips and skills to support you along the way to managing your pain. It is not meant to be the last word in pain self-management but a handy guide to help you get started - all you need to be is willing to read it and take on board some of the suggestions.
