More Than Fibro – SCIO exists to support individuals with the chronic illness that is Fibromyalgia and other overlapping health conditions.
Our mission at More Than Fibro is to create a safe community in order to support our members in all aspects of their life. This will allow our members to learn, grow and thrive in a positive environment. Our vision at More Than Fibro is to raise awareness of the condition fibromyalgia. We aim to end the stigma surrounding the condition by educating the greater community and helping them to support those around them.
First, we offer online support across all social media including a closed support page for people living with Fibromyalgia and their carers, there is a live Q&A every month and this will include speakers from January 2021. Then, when restrictions allow for it, we will be bringing support meetings into communities with a variety of speakers to help you access the support that you need. We also hold weekly online coffee chats over microsoft teams which allows our members to talk about anything that is worrying them, ask advice on advocacy services for benefits they may be entitled to also.

More Than Fibro was established in 2020, our founder is called Sharon Turnbull. Sharon has spent the past 3 years, doing various voluntary work, the most notable being with Citizens Advice Bureau and a non-profit supporting people with Fibromyalgia.
Within More than Fibro we have an established advocacy service. Sharon assists our members with applications and being present at various benefit tribunals if applicable. To date we are very busy with this service.

We have also launched support groups in Glasgow and Edinburgh and our next port of call is Irvine in Ayrshire. We have secured premises for our support group and will be working from the Royal British Legion Centre.
