Have you ever wanted to create your own ostomy support group but didn’t know how to go about it? Or you are lost for ideas on what to do once it is created? You have?! That’s great because I have some news which will be of interest to you!
UK ostomy support charity Ostomy Lifestyle offers a very well received and highly praised course to introduce you to what makes a great ostomy support group and how you can go about creating one for your local area. Called The Nuts and Bolts of Running a Support Group it’s a free six hour/one day course to attend thanks to the generous funding by the national lottery and Ostomy Lifestyle offer the course around various locations in England. You do not have to be currently in the process of setting up a group, and even if you are running an established group you are eligible to attend the course where you might pick up an idea or two to make your group even better than it already is.
Places are still available for various dates this year so if you are interested why not take a peek at the course’s page on the Ostomy Lifestyle website which contains lots more information as well as a list of available dates for 2013 at - http://www.ostomylifestyle.
Once your group is up and running drop us a line here at Ostomyland and we’ll be delighted to promote it for you.
