What is Fibro Active?

Fibro Active is a supportive community that embraces individuals dealing with Fibromyalgia (FM) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), as well as those who care for them.

Our Approach

At Fibro Active, we focus on a positive approach to wellbeing. Our program emphasizes:

Supportive Community & Activities

The Fibro 5

We’ve embraced a positive approach rooted in the government’s “5 Ways to Wellbeing,” which we proudly refer to as the Fibro 5. These fundamental principles serve as the cornerstone of our program, aiming to enrich not just physical health but also mental and emotional wellbeing.
