Local Support Contacts
Local Support Contacts are individuals across the UK who volunteer their time to offer support to individuals diagnosed with scleroderma in their area.
Many of our local support contacts have formed groups who meet informally, usually a few times a year. The groups may meet wherever they decide; some meet in coffee shops, others meet in someone's home, others meet in their local hospital. Some groups have one or two members, others have a dozen or so. Each group exists to give people in the same area the chance to meet and chat with someone in a similar position to them, who not only understands about the condition, but also about what it feels like to live with scleroderma.
To find out if there is a group in your area, contact your local support contact - click where you live on the map to find the relevant contact details. You don't have to be a member of the Society to join a local group or receive support from a local support contact.
Thanks to our local support contacts, we have groups established in many parts of the UK but not yet everywhere. If there's no group in your area and you would be interested in starting one, please contact the team, who will be able to provide you with support and guidance in setting one up.
