The Kent branch has been active for about 25 years. It began as a vehicle to generate funds for a home, and to provide mutual help and support.
We are a core of four families plus a few others, our homes are spread from Margate to a couple of the London Boroughs.
We meet to support and learn from each other, maintain a knowledge of all things of relevance, to campaign and support Sense. Even in such a small group we each have entirely different medical, care and associated problems to handle, consider and fight for.
For us it is the learning, conversation and knowledge that we exchange and discuss which makes meeting in person so vital.
