About us

self management uk is the UK’s leading charity in self-management education, training and support.

We work with patients, carers, healthcare professionals, clinicians and commissioners, to provide appropriate self-management training for those living with long-term health condition(s).

Training is delivered by peer facilitators, who either have a long-term condition or look after someone who has. Our tutors have been through a self-management course and have volunteered to be tutors in order to share the life-changing benefits of self-management training, By engaging volunteers, our programmes have a wider impact on local communities.

  • To help those living with long-term conditions to better manage their condition and improve their health and wellbeing

  • To promote self-management among opinion leaders, policy makers and the government
