Support groups Derby area

    Hi. Does anyone know of any support groups on the Derby or East Midlands area? It would be so helpful to share stories and give and receive support. I have some really good friends but they can't really understand just how hard things are. I also wondered if there are any groups specifically for patents of late teens/young adults. I tried to join a Facebook group but I think it's finished. Does anyone know about this, or interested in re starting it if it is.

    Hi SGCmum,

    I've attached our current list of groups, but unforunately I don't think we have one listed at the moment.

    Hopefully another parent will also see your message and respond. In the meantime, have you thought about contacting your 'local offer' as they will hold lists of groups that are known to them.... within Bucks it's currently held under the Bucks Family Information Service, but every county should have something.

    Not sure if this group is still up and running . Just looking there are the Sheffield and Rotherham Groups . They might have better local knowledge .
