Peer Support Groups

Find your local chest, heart or stroke support group

Join one of our 140+ affiliated Peer Support Groups across Scotland and get support, socialise and meet others who understand what you’re going through.

Many stroke survivors or people living with long-term chest or heart conditions find it really helpful to connect with people who have had similar experiences.

Whether you want to find out more about your condition and how to look after yourself, or just fancy a friendly cuppa and a chat with people who know exactly how you’re feeling, our Peer Support Groups are the perfect place to meet likeminded people.

Each group offers their own programme of activities, with everything from gentle exercise sessions to coffee mornings.
