Welcome to our Campaign
“Walk In My Shoes” is a campaign devised by member of CWTCH (Pembrokeshire) to inform people about chronic health conditions and symptoms you can’t always see.
Our members have reported to us that in order to fit in with friends, family and society in general, they most often try and hide their pain so that it isn’t visible to everyone. They do this because it is a way of coping.
Do you want to volunteer with us ???
As a volunteer, you will be working with the CWTCH trustees to help run the support group, meet and support adults with a chronic health condition and also give us your ideas for activities and fundraising. Volunteers are really important to us and we could not run CWTCH without them!
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us at: [email protected]
