We are a peer-lead adult ADHD support group in Kingston-upon-Thames, open to everyone in need of pee
Our goals are to:
- improve peoples lives by empowering them to become more involved in understanding and managing their condition/s
- raise awareness of adult ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and the effect undiagnosed and untreated Neurodevelopmental conditions has on both individuals and their families.
We continually strive to educate and build stronger and closer relationships with local adult clinical services, local authorities, ICBs, charities, other support groups, businesses other organisations, so that they can use our feedback to adapt their services and make reasonable adjustments for people affected by hidden disabilities.
Currently we survive mainly on financial contributions from members and well-wishers.Why the community needs us
We hold weekly meetings (in person and online) and monthly meetings (currently online only) where people can experience the relief of being with others who 'think and talk' the same as them.
Our talks by specialists on topics related to ADHD are very popular, as is our weekly art group.
We encourage members to "buddy-up" to support and advocate for each other, and try to keep members informed of the current medical, clinical and treatment advice.
In addition, we regularly hear from people who feel a family member or someone close to them may have ADHD, and want to know what to do next or where to go.Our impact on the community
We have supported numerous adults on their journey to diagnosis, and who have remained active members of the group.
