Hi, I've been trying to find a support group in my area but can't find any.

Are there any sufferers in the Durham, Tyne and Wear area of the UK?

Diana.

Hi Winnie,

I've checked The Scleroderma Society's website, but unfortunately there is no local group listed for the North East of England.

Perhaps we may have members in that area who could contact you through our PM (personal message) system?

Kind regards,

Hello Winnie

Although it means travelling you can, in theory, go to any group anywhere, boundaries do not apply. I host the Essex, London & Kent group and have a member from far a field who has since become a dear friend. Contact the group nearest to you if you like and are able to travel.

Alternatively contact the Local Group Coordinator, Liz Holloway, about hosting a group yourself or at least getting in touch with others in your area. You need to be a member of the Scleroderma Society to host a group, contact other members but not to attend.

Take care.

Hello Diana & Dorothy

 

Perhaps you could PM each other and start a group or just meet up?

 

Take care.
