ADHD Aware is a member-led group that aims to support adults affected by ADHD. We run monthly drop-ins on focused topics, monthly sessions for partners of those diagnosed with ADHD and associated Neuro-diverse conditions, a group for parents with young children under the age of 16 years old with ADHD, a general drop-in group and a newly formed group for parents of young people aged 16-25 years.  We also provide support and advice via email and via our website, e-newsletter, Facebook and Instagram.  Last year we supported 44,000 people impacted by ADHD in adulthood and expanded our services to help a wider variety of people. We also swiftly digitalised all our services, although we hope to resume those when it is safe to do so.

Practical Considerations
