This forum provides a useful meeting place "for individuals to share their experiences and offer mutual support" but face to face meetings can be quite reassuring.

Barrett's Wessex holds regular monthly "Drop-By" sessions for anyone to come and chat about anything that concerns them.

The next meetings are: Thursday 28th July at Haskins Ferndown, Bournemouth BH22 9DG, between 3:00 - 5:00 pm and Thursday 4th August at Haskins Garden Centre, Mansbridge Road, Southampton,SO18 3HW between 3:00 - 5:00 pm.

Would you be prepared to "host" a coffee meeting?
Just choose a venue (Garden Centres with cafés are ideal) and a date and time to suit you and advertise it on this forum (and/or you could get a mention in your local paper or local radio "What's On" guide).
Take some means of identification; I can provide you with a Barrett's poster (and/or a tee-shirt if you're prepared to wear it) and a book in case no-one turns up.
You do not need to know answers to questions. Take visitors names and addresses (or email addresses) and pass their questions on - we'll attempt to send them an answer very quickly.

Small coffee meetings like these are a useful way to raise awareness and publicise the campaign: they could even be the start of a new local support branch.

All the best
