Local Support Groups - finding support in your area
In some areas Local Support Groups have been formed where MATCH Members meet occasionally and informally. We are keen to encourage the development of Local Support Groups and have produced guidelines to assist anyone interested in setting up a group. Meeting face to face offers an opportunity to discuss and share common problems, sometimes for the first time, with other mothers apart in a safe, non-judgemental environment where Members are sensitive and respectful of each other’s situation. Many Members find that emotional stress can be partially relieved through sharing their own experiences or describing practical ways in which they have moved forward.
