What is Fibro Active?

Fibro Active is a Long Eaton based support group for people with Fibromyalgia (FM) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and their carers. It is a positive and inclusive group that focuses on healthy lifestyle, light exercise, support and sharing information as well as educating members about their condition and help them move forward with their acceptance and management of the illness.

Fibro Active have been nominated for the Local CO-OP Community Fund from October 27th 2019 to October 24th 2020.

Every time a CO-OP member shops at the CO-OP, 1% of what they spend on selected own-branded products or services can help community projects like ours.

Already a CO-OP member? It’s very easy to change your nominated cause to Fibro Active. Just go to or phone 0800 0234 708.

Not a member?  You can visit and register as a member. It costs just £1. You can choose Fibro Active as your nominated cause while you are putting your details in. There are plenty of benefits for you too when you become a member.

Is Fibro Active for me?

Fibro Active is carefully planned to include everyone. The location is access friendly and the meetings are positive, friendly and supportive.
