Local Support

Our next meetings are noted below. We know that attending your first support meeting can be daunting. If you feel more comfortable please use the contact us form, email us at or phone first before attending, so we can talk you through what to expect and to ensure a warm welcome when you do attend.

For other ad-hoc and locally organised events, please see our Events page for more details.
