About the group

The Torbay and Exeter Dystonia UK Support Group was established in 2010 by an active member living in the area. The group meets to give members an opportunity to get together for mutual support, refreshments and a chat.

The group is a lively forum for discussion and sharing the experiences and knowledge of those attending. Refreshments are offered. The group rotates informal support meetings with planning meetings, social events and speakers.

The group meets monthly on the second Saturday of every other month. The group meets in the new Paignton Library and Information Centre. There is a lift for access. There is also a public Cafe downstairs, and the room has facilities so tea/coffee and light refreshments can be provided.

The group also meets for social events in other venues in the area. The group has a regular attendance of about 12 people.


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.
