The second Derby Local Support group meeting took place on 6th February, online via Zoom. Although this was primarily setup for Derby and the surrounding areas, one person who attends is resident in Wales. As there are currently no support group meetings in Wales and due to the fact that this meeting is only online at the moment, this person is continuing to attend the Derby meetings.

We were able to focus and concentrate on the attendees TN stories to date. Stories and experiences were discussed in great length. Following this meeting the attendee in Wales joined the TN Association and was able to join in the Wales resident’s member’s meeting that also took place online.

Since the meeting I have also setup a WhatsApp group for the attendees. This will hopefully allow them to feel they have the support should they need it on a daily basis.

The next meeting hasn’t been scheduled yet but I plan to run the next one late March/early April.
