Peer Support Groups

In a Location near you

Living with a stoma can be overwhelming, and that’s why we’ve created local support groups that you can rely on. We offer a wealth of resources and tools to help you navigate the challenges of living with a stoma. Whether you’re looking for information on diet and exercise or seeking peer support from others who have been there, we’re always here to help. We believe that no one should have to face the challenges of life with a stoma alone.

If you have a suggestion for a location to hold a meeting or wish to host one yourself please contact us we would love to hear from you!

Testimonials from group members

"This Group has really helped me as the support person for my partner. It's helped me to understand more about the physical and mental health issues faced by people have bags and how they cope. 

Its been great for talking to other people, asking questions and being able to get support from the other members of the group too. There's so much knowledge at the table that we can tap into too which has been helpful."

Joyce

Being part of the support group is a hugely valued life line. Being able to speak to people who understand what you're living with and the challenges that life throws at you with a stoma is so reassuring.

You can talk about issues that affect you both physically and mentally and there's always someone who can offer advice and support.

Claire
