Aberdeenshire & Aberdeen City Support


Our information is relevant to everyone, regardless of where you are in the UK and overseas. To develop our support further, we have started a focused contact area whereby we provide face-to-face contact, arrange activities, highlight local therapies and other forms of support for those in ABERDEENSHIRE and ABERDEEN CITY. We plan to roll out our face-to-face support to further areas over time, and with the help of our volunteers.


Should you be interested in helping us whether in Aberdeenshire or other areas of the UK, please email hello@ianm212.sg-host.com.
