The Pain Support and Wellness Groups offer an opportunity for people living with persistent pain to meet on a regular basis to learn about self-management of pain, receive and provide support by sharing knowledge, experiences, coping strategies, and offering understanding. Pain BC is looking for volunteer facilitators to co-lead/facilitate in-person Pain Support and Wellness Groups in various communities across the province.

As a volunteer, you will receive thorough training and educational materials from Pain BC, as well as ongoing support from Pain BC staff to facilitate the group in your community.

Groups meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month with alternating afternoon and evening sessions. Each 2-hour session allows participants to share their experiences, discuss self-management skills and take part in gentle movement exercises as a group.

Learn more about the opportunity.
