We regularly devote time during our London meetings for ‘small discussion groups’, during which we encourage members to talk in small groups about whatever they would find most helpful. We know that the advice and support shared during these groups can be incredibly helpful, and so we will often ask one of our team to quietly sit in on each group and take notes about the themes, questions, and advice being shared.

Here, we have attempted to distil some of these questions and answers into a format that we hope will be helpful to all of our members, whether or not you are able to attend our London meetings.

This is by no means meant to be an exhaustive directory of questions and answers related to PPA, and whilst we have tried to ensure that all of the information in here is accurate, we cannot be held responsible for any errors or pieces of advice that you may disagree with.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that you assume full responsibility and risk in the use of information contained on our website, in our newsletters, at support group meetings and in subsequent correspondence. Our support group based correspondence is generic in nature and we are limited in our ability to offer specific advice via this means. We aim to ensure that all information is as accurate as possible but we accept no responsibility for any errors, omissions or inaccuracies, or for any adverse consequences of any kind arising from the use of support group based content. Our regional group facilitators are volunteers. They may refer to regional facilitator guidelines from RDS but are not governed by RDS. They operate independently and with best intention and you assume full responsibility for your contact and engagement with them and in the regional groups they facilitate. Please see the clinician responsible for your care, a social services representative, or your GP if you have specific needs which require attention. Any medical decisions should be taken in discussion with an appropriate health care professional.
