Event Information

The theme for this week's group will be: Reasonable Adjustments
 

The Chronic Pain Peer Support Group is for autistic people or people who identify as autistic, age 18+ who live in the Fife area.   

We will explore strategies of support to manage pain as well as link with professionals who can offer advice and guidance. 

The sessions will be relaxed and friendly where the group can share their own stories, support needs and strategies.  We will also ask for ideas around themed sessions, this may include: 
  • Advocacy support

  • Alternative therapies more widely 
  • Circles of support

The group will run monthly, with the next group taking place on Thursday, 7th March at 11am – 12.30pm. This will be a hybrid group and you can choose to attend in person or online via Zoom.
