The group is a self help support group who have regular monthly meetings with speakers on various subjects, as we feel that good information and communication is important in the self management of our conditions and the more we know what is available to us, the more we are able to cope with everyday life.

During the group sessions we also have relaxation and seated exercise sessions so there’s maybe something you can take and enjoy at your leisure which will help you manage a little better.

Our group is open to all members of the public who suffer from or care for someone with a long term medical condition, not only from the Angus area but also from Dundee.
