Support Group Contacts

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. For example a few members in Southampton meet occasionally in a local garden centre café. 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.

If you would like further details on essential tremor support groups in your area or are interested in starting up a group, please contact NTF support group co-ordinator Jackie Farrell on 07843 777288 or email jackie@tremor.org.uk
