We are dedicated to reducing the social and other barriers to living with chronic pain.We are a group of people who are tired of the way things are for people in pain. You may be feeling quite isolated and 'over it' and feel that no one really understands your experience. You might even feel that people don't believe you. Many people tell us about these experiences. Don't despair, you aren't crazy! And you aren't on your own either. Over the years many volunteers have strengthened us so that we can work towards greater community understanding about chronic pain.
Chronic Pain Australia receives NO FUNDING from government. This means that we are all volunteers, and together we have achieved a great deal including partnering with the Australian Pain Society and the Faculty of Pain Medicine to develop Australia's First National Pain Strategy.
