Due to some recent events an opportunity has arisen that allows the Paisley group to assume the mantle of the charity known as the Inverclyde Fibromyalgia Support Group. This was due to close and windup. However the previous office bearers have contacted the Paisley committee to see if the resources of the charity could be put to good use within the Paisley and Inverclyde region.

The committee would like to recommend that the Paisley group takes on the role of the previous Inverclyde group. In order to do this we must follow some protocols to make and record decisions about this. To this aim please take note of the following notices. It may seem long winded but it should only take a short amount of time and the benefits to the Paisley group will significant in terms of resources and obtaining charity status.
