We hold free peer-support group meetings in Central Plymouth where you can socialise in a safe environment, share experiences and coping strategies, and perhaps form new friendships.


We sometimes have speakers about health and benefits issues etc and run outings and cafe meet-ups.

We are about to trial online meetings due to Covid-19 restrictions, we hope to continue with these for those who cannot get to meetings even when covid-19 restrictions have ended.
