Re: Local Groups Listing - England & Wales

Local groups listing significantly revised and updated (most recently 2 October 2011).

If anyone is running a group (or thinking of starting a group) and would like help promoting it - and possibly also receiving some 'seed' funding to get it off the ground - please get in touch with me.

Re: Local Groups Listing - England & Wales

Hello Ray and colleagues,
In response to your enquiry Ray, I am confirming that the Huddersfield group for which I was the named contact closed some time ago.
Thanks for all you do to support the person-centred community.
Best wishes
Christine Chappelow
