FMSSAS – Charity No. 1108454.  Website www.fms-sas.co.uk

We are looking for one or more people to help us with a publicity campaign targeting Pain Clinics, Rheumatologists, Physiotherapists, GPs, Hospitals etc., sending out letters and leaflets.  This needs to be done throughout Surrey and Sussex.

We also need someone to do some fundraising/grant applications.

We do not have a physical headquarters or formal address.  Trustees and other volunteers work from their own homes.

Our aims and objectives are to support sufferers and their families by reducing isolation, improving quality of life and by empowering people living with FMS to develop the knowledge, skills and resources needed to secure a positive future. We do this by encouraging the growth of and working with independent support groups throughout the region, and by working to raise awareness of this neglected patient group.
