Lots of groups meet at The Brain Charity, as you can see below. Support groups offer a way for people affected by a condition to share experiences and gain an understanding of how a condition can affect others. Support groups are a great way of meeting new people and learning new coping strategies to help through illness to recovery.
It can be daunting to join a new group at first but everybody in that group will understand how it feels to be the new person so you can be sure of a warm welcome.
As well as our normal monthly Tea, Coffee and Company morning on 7th August, come along and join us for Monday Brunch on 24th July, 31st July, 14th August, and 21st August.
Join us in our café, meet new friends and old
