Local support groups

Our community support groups offer the chance to meet up with other people affected by HS in your area. They provide opportunities to share both worries and advice with your peers. The group facilitators are not professional counsellors, but people who have personal experiences with HS, and along with members of the support group they can help to give insight and advice on living and dealing with HS on a day to day basis.

There is no need to let us know that you will be attending, and you are very welcome to bring along a friend or family member for support.
