The following West Berkshire community programmes have been awarded funding from our Community Engagement Programme (CEP) 2018. Thank you to all who took part, we were hugely impressed by the high standards of all entries.
Young Adults Fibromyalgia survey and awareness event
People aged 16-30 that have Fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, were eligible to participate in a survey that was used to get a better understanding of how Fibromyalgia affects people. By participating a person would have the chance to win a £100 Amazon Voucher.
An awareness event and launch of the research project for Fibromyalgia was held at the West Berkshire Community Hospital at 6:00pm on Tuesday 23rd October 2018. People attending would watch the BBC documentary “M.E and me”, be able to chat to the professionals that were present to get their questions answered, see who won the £100 voucher and more.
