Welcome to the Post Polio Support Group Website
John McFarlane has resigned as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Post Polio Support Group and as a Director. John has been experiencing serious health issues over the last few months and does not feel that he can continue as a member of the Board. We thank him for the extraordinary contribution that he, together with unstinting support from his wife Mary, has given to our organisation over many years. We wish him the best of health and happiness in the future and hope that he will continue to be involved in the activities of the Group.
At the Board meeting on Saturday 5th October, Susan Dowling was elected as Chair and Jim Barrett was elected as Deputy Chair.

The POST POLIO SUPPORT GROUP is an organisation set up by Polio Survivors to assist their fellow survivors, particularly in relation to the Late Effects of Polio and Post Polio Syndrome. The Group was formed in 1993 and is run by a voluntary Board of Polio Survivors and friends, and is supported by voluntary committees, other voluntary workers and a small executive staff at the office in Dublin.
