Default Support groups around Gloucestershire

Hi All

My wife and I have been googling to find groups in the Gloucestershire area that can help with just simply having people who are in the same situation as us to talk to about living with HD.

Unfortunately my searches haven't been successful and I was hoping to find some contacts on this forum.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated

Kindest regards
Andy

Hi Andy

London calling.

However...

Have you spoken to the HDA?

If these guys are not up and running still, the HDA may have some ideas of who is in the area.
