About the Group
The group is a registered charity which functions on the generosity of individual donors, pharmaceutical companies and charitable organistations. The group receives no government funding.
Today, the group members number in excess of 600 men and women, all of whom are Osteoporosis sufferers, and membership continues to grow steadily.
Professor Diamond felt there was a need for Osteoporosis sufferers to learn more about the disease and and how to manage this debilitating condition.
Contributions are made by volunteers and staff:
The volunteer workers and staff contribute to the total overall running of the group by attending all activities and organizing functions.
The Committee, which is voluntary, give freely of their time in the planning of establishing programmes that will be of benefit to the community.
Our Physiotherapists work together with Dr Diamond to implement exercise programmes put forward by the committee. These programmes are directed towards the community to assist them to cope with Osteoporosis.
