RLS-UK is a Board member of the European Alliance for Restless Legs Syndrome (EARLS), a non-profit, independent alliance of national patient organisations from various European countries which engages in activities that contribute to raising awareness of Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). EARLS raises important issues at a European level, issues which are common to all members.
Membership of RLS-UK increases our representation at a European level and increases our capacity to lobby on your behalf. If you have not yet joined our charity, please consider doing so today (the fee is £10 per year). A membership form can be found on our website rls-uk.org.
The EARLS Board met for its General Assembly Meeting in Brussels on February 17th. Details of discussions etc will be provided in our next RLS-UK newsletter.
