Support & Advice Local Support Groups Anglesey & Gwynedd “Welcome to the Anglesey & Gwynedd group. I am really looking forward to supporting you all and helping people in the area” What happens at the group? Meetings are informal, just a chance to have a panad (cuppa!) a chat and meet new people in a similar situation to your own. New members are always welcome so please feel free to come along and either share your story or just listen to others. No pressure! I also welcome any ideas/suggestions about what you would like to see in the group. Group dates: Date: Time: Location: Extra Meeting Details: We have now tentatively re-opened our support groups, however, it is at the discretion of individual group leads to decide what they feel comfortable delivering in the community, in addition to local COVID-19 guidance given in your area.

I want to run a support group to hopefully offer the same support that I received from friends in Alopecia UK and provide a comfortable platform to others with hair loss to chat and maybe meet up.
