“There’s nothing like being able to share your story with people who really understand, because they have experienced similar. We can all have a good laugh and let off steam. Makes no difference whether it’s round a table over a coffee or face to face on Zoom! We welcome everyone with disability who is over 65 to come and be part of our monthly online peer support group. Its free to join. ”

Rachel Matthews, MAC Group convenor.
