FREE EVENTS & SUPPORT ACTIVITIES
Happy 2017 to you all! We have some exciting things happening this year, and we hope you will see something you would like to come along to. If you would like to suggest an event or think there is something missing, just let us know. We want everyone to be part of the events programme.
Everyone living with or connected to bleeding disorders is welcome at our events. We know that mums, dads, brothers, sisters, partners, grandparents, carers and friends of those with bleeding disorders are all affected by diagnosis, and you are a crucial part of our community too. You can attend events on your own, with your family or supportive friend. All events are free, unless stated, and we can reimburse travel costs.
Our events and support activities run so we can share information, help each other, and connect to medical professionals or alternative therapies. We also hold events that raise awareness at science festivals and in other pop up public spaces.
All activities aim to be accessible and relaxed. We provide details on accessibility for all our events, and can find out answers to any questions you may have. We try to make sure that there is something for everyone and we want to run events that will interest the whole community.
