In some areas of the country, local groups have formed to offer mutual support and information. These groups usually have a range of in person and online meetings, with guest speakers covering medical and non-medical topics. They also hold social and fundraising events.
The areas where you will find these groups are:
- Shropshire, Wales and The Marches
- Lothian & Fife
- Newcastle Upon Tyne
- Sheffield & District
- Yorkshire & Humberside
- Northern Ireland
If you are interested in joining in with one of these locally-based groups, please contact our helpline 01386 430140 (UK) or Contact us by email and we will put you in touch with a local co-ordinator.
We are setting up a network of local champions to cover locations without a local group.
