Adult ADHD Support Group based in Brighton, UK

Thank you for your donations!

Thanks to our amazing community, the future is looking bright for our free ADHD support groups.

Our mission is to support adults with ADHD

We do this by providing neurodiverse peer support groups in Brighton & Hove, and nationally on zoom.

ADHD Aware is national charity, based in Brighton. We have been supporting adults impacted by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for over a decade, and are led by volunteers with lived experience of neurodiversity.

We offer peer support both locally and nationally.

"Peer support" is when people use their own personal (lived) experiences to help each other with something they have in common. Our aim is to bring together people with shared experiences to support each other, providing a space where you feel safe, accepted and understood.

We hold a programme of regular sessions each month, both in-person and on Zoom, all supported by our volunteers.

We offer free support for:

Our support groups are a chance to relax in the company of people who understand us. We share information and ideas, and the chance to speak confidentially. We aim to help our members feel that they are not alone, and that they have a place to go for shared experience and forming relationships with like-minded people.

We also run facilitated discussion groups for ADHD adults, which are an opportunity for our members to come together and share information, advice and personal experiences around an agreed topic, with the potential to tackle some of the core issues around living with ADHD.

You can find out more about all of our different sessions, and how to attend, plus other events and activities, in our monthly newsletter. To receive the e-newsletter, please join our mailing list.

The events calendar below shows the dates of upcoming sessions in the current month.

ADHD Aware also provides workplace neurodiversity awareness training to other organisations.

Testimonials

“The group has made me feel much less isolated. Spending time with a group of neurodiverse people is a very reassuring break from normal life where you are somewhat of an outsider."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Volunteering at ADHD Aware has helped me to shrug the feeling of helplessness that I'd been suffering in silence with.

When I see the positive impact I can have on people by giving them the right bit of advice or often just by listening to them, it gives me a sense of purpose."

"I've found by coming together to share our knowledge and experiences of our condition, I'm far better at understanding and supporting myself and those around me."

The understanding and compassion of the fellow volunteers at ADHD Aware removed that anxiety, allowing me to focus on the task at hand instead of just worrying and getting frustrated about my weaknesses.

“It has helped me live to positively with ADHD. The group helps me to understand me.”
