Parents often want to talk to other parents, share experiences and concerns, and get together to help campaign for improved services in their area. The groups offer friendship and support in an informal atmosphere and welcome new members.
Afasic currently supports several peer support groups in Scotland. There are parent groups who meet regularly in Edinburgh, East Dunbartonshire and Inverclyde and there are online networks and telephone link ups to individual parents. The Afasic parent network is set up with flexibility in mind; parents have the options to get what they need, how they need it, when they need it.
More information about these groups is available in this section.
If you are interested in setting up or linking in with a support group in your area then please contact us.
