Local peer support groups

Retina UK Local Peer Support Groups offer information and support via regular meetings.

Groups meet in person or virtually and are a welcoming, safe and friendly place for people to share experiences, tips and information and form friendships.

Our active local peer support groups meet in venues around the UK. If there isn’t one currently in your area, please get in touch with Mark, our Information and Support Coordinator. You can email him on or call him on 07889 595783.

We also offer a National Peer Support group and a Talking Tech group. More information about upcoming events can be found in our events calendar.
