Support Groups

Supporting families, patients & carers

Our support groups for vasculitis are attended by patients and carers.  They are informal meetings where patients will hear guidance talks on a wide variety of topics that affect patients in their daily life.  They are also an opportunity to ask any questions and receive the support and information you require. The group meetings provide updates on what the LCTF is doing around awareness, research and education and a Vasculitis Scotland update on planned support network events.

Our support groups offer that opportunity to meet other patients or carers living in your local area who are affected by the disease.  Meeting others is vitally important in breaking down the isolation patients and carers can feel daily.

All of our Vasculitis Support Groups are free to attend and offer a free buffet lunch served with tea and coffee.
