We are always looking for more people to take on this valuable work. If you would consider getting involved all we ask is that you have had your own condition for more than one year and feel you have the necessary attributes etc to listen and help others. If you would like to consider supporting this vital service financially please click here and print off and fill out the relevant application form and send it in to us or phone and talk to one of us about your interest. If you feel you might be able to be involved in the actual work on the line then please fill out this form and again, send it in to us.
Times: 11am - 1pm
You can just drop in to either of these locations at the times and dates specified for an informal chat or, to discuss a confidential matter, please make an appointment for the Belfast Centre by phoning the Helpline any Thursday morning. Please do not contact the Vine Centre directly about these sessions.
Margaret (FMSNI Chair), Debbie and/or Liz will be available to talk to anyone at the Coleraine location needing help with any aspect of living with FMS. Margaret is also willing to visit people at home if necessary. Please click here
