Support - Local groups

This is a list of the local groups we’re aware of (please note that these local PDA support groups are independent and external to the PDA Society). Some are online-only Facebook groups, some are local support groups and some do both.

If you run a local PDA support group and wish to have your details added please email us with the name of your group, location, details about when and where you meet up, contact details and links to any website or Facebook page.

If you’re interested in setting up a local PDA support group, please note that there isn’t a formal programme for this but we can support anyone who wants to set up their own local group by providing guidance, leaflets and a platform for promoting the group. Hilary Harvey who set up The South Bucks PDA Support Group has put together a helpful guide for us called ‘Setting up a PDA Support Group’ which can be found in the ‘Get Involved’ menu.
