Convenors & Leaders

Our Group organises 'Social Support' meetings in various areas throughout the country. These informal meetings are run by local voluntary Convenors who are key to successful gatherings.  The main aim of these meetings is to provide our members with an opportunity to meet locally with other members and non-members for a social evening and a chat.  Feature speakers regularly attend presenting recreational and medical topics.  Outings and other activities are conducted at certain times of the year.  The contact details for the convenors are listed.

Telephone Support Service

The aim of this service is to provide social support on the telephone.  Some members of the PPSG have taken on a leadership role with this project and have agreed to contact other members on a regular basis.  The service is achieved in one of two ways:

One-to-one contact with the call taking place about once a month for up to 30 minutes.

A telephone conference where, with the help of modern technology, members are linked up on the phone so that they can all talk together in a group.  The conference takes place once a fortnight and lasts for about 45 minutes.

If you are interested in receiving this service, please contact Lillian at the Office:
