Local support groups

Our groups provide information and support to those with macular disease, their family and friends.

Each one is a welcoming and compassionate place to learn about the support available, build your confidence, and better understand your own macular disease. And, of course, it’s a chance to make new friends who really understand what sight loss is like.
