The National Tremor Foundation currently has a small network of local Support Groups across the United Kingdom. These groups are run by dedicated volunteers who give their time to offer support and information to anyone affected by a tremor condition living in their area.
Meetings can vary in frequency from regular monthly groups or on a casual basis perhaps three or four times a year. We realize not everyone can commit planning too far in advance. As well as coffee & chat they also get to enjoy the plants! Would this idea or similar be something you could consider in your area?
Groups give people the opportunity to learn about their conditions, chat to people with similar problems, compare notes and pass on helpful hints and tips in a welcoming environment. They are not only about supporting one another, but also about having fun and making new friends.
Please note: Local Support Groups are run independently by volunteers and are not governed by the National Tremor Foundation. Whilst we provide guidelines for support groups we cannot be held responsible for any problems you might encounter with them. On the basis that local support groups follow our guidelines we provide a home for their listings and endeavour to keep contact details accurate but depend on the groups to keep us informed of any changes.
