Shropshire Self Help Groups
Self help groups are where people who share similar experiences come together to offer practical and emotional support to each other.
People go to self help groups for many different reasons. Some simply want information and will then move on, others may want to make sense of what is happening to them by sharing experiences.
If you cannot find a group that fits your needs why not talk to a member of the Care Information Team? They can give you free, confidential information on health and care services available in your area. For contact details click on the links below.

Is your group in the Shropshire Community Directory?
If you are part of a self help group that is not yet included in the Shropshire Community Directory, please add your details online or ask for a leaflet at your local library. The details will be confirmed with you before appearing in the on-line directory.
