Local groups

The local support groups are a great way to meet others with a vestibular disorder, to share hints and tips, experiences, gain mutual support and, in some cases, hear from expert speakers. The groups are set up by members, health professionals and/or related organisations and run autonomously from, but with the support of, the Ménière’s Society. Contact the Meniere's Society for further information or click on the group name below to email the group direct for more information. Some email links are external and go direct to the group, others come via the Society and we forward the message on. If there is no link for a group, please contact the Meniere's Society for more details.

Contact a member

Contact with others can help to significantly reduce related worries and tensions about living with the effects of Ménière’s disease and vestibular conditions. The Meniere’s Society contact list gives details of other members enabling you to make local contacts for mutual support. Members ‘opt in’ to include their details on the list. This list is available on request to members only. Please contact us to receive a copy of the list.
