Daytime meetings

We are delighted to announce that from September we shall be resuming our monthly daytime support group sessions. Please note that the venue for the meetings will be Room 6, The Circle (Voluntary Action Sheffield), 33 Rockingham Lane, Sheffield, S1 4FW. They will be held on the third Thursday of each month (not the second as previously stated) and starting at 12.00pm (not 1.00pm).

So our first three meetings for 2021 will be on Thursday 16th September, Thursday 21st October and Thursday 18th November, all at 12.00pm.
