Help and support Your local support group Manchester About the group The group meets twice a year at a central Manchester venue to give members an opportunity to listen to a speaker on aspects of dystonia or a subject relating to general health and wellbeing. There is a raffle and refreshments and the meetings also give members a chance to chat. Around 24 people usually attend. In addition the group meets several times a year for social events. These include meals, visits to gardens, the theatre and other places of interest to members. A small group of volunteers help to organise outings, raffles etc and individual members and their families raise awareness through fundraising activities such as the BUPA Great Manchester Run, plant sales and coffee mornings. Future meeting dates All group meetings are postponed until further notice due to COVID-19, however we would like to invite you to take this opportunity to join our virtual groups on Facebook and to reach out to people near you that you may not have met through your normal group meetings. There are individual pages for each UK region and you can find the groups here.
