About this group 

A friendly, informal, volunteer led group offering an opportunity to meet with others living with Tinnitus.

The aim of the group is to inform and empower people living with tinnitus, supporting them to manage their condition better through peer-to-peer support and information and advice from talks and presentations by guest speakers.

Attendees are welcome to bring along a family member or friend.

When the group meets (dates and times of meetings)

The first Thursday of every month, from 2pm to 4pm.
