Many people with stomas can often feel alone in the world. There are many self-help support groups across the country that are always looking for new members. Alternatively you may wish to speak with one of our volunteers, either local to yourself or in a different area but with experience on a specific issue that you want to discuss.

Covid-19 update: We would advise that you contact a support group before attending to check if they are currently running.
