Hey guys
I'm wondering if any people under 40 have found support groups for their age group in their area?
Not sure where to start and google wasn't much help! I'm in North East England.

Can I suggest you contact AC Information and Helplines from Tueday morning, they may be of help...Moderator J

    Hi Chrissie
    No I havent heard of any but I'll make enquiries when I go to my next branch meeting or if I'm speaking to the chair person before that.
    You know where I live so if I can find one it'll be close by lol
    Love

    Hi Chrissie
    Yes I go to the Gateshead one.
    You're welcome to tag along but the next meeting {next Monday} is the AGM so not the usual meeting
    Love

    yea i think there needs to be more support for younger people. Im 28 and seem to be missing the boat, because theres young peoples forums for under 20's, but nothing for us middle people. I dont have OA or RA so noone ever understands, its annoying.
