Lorni Atkinson Email: lorni.atkinson01@ntlworld.com

Voluntary Organisation:
Bromley Addvice is an online information & support group for families affected by ADHD, the main focus is for families living in & around the London Borough of Bromley but other families out of Borough will find the website useful too.

We have a small email group for the families to support each other & this group is exclusively for families not professionals so we can let off steam as well as support each other through good & bad times.

We actively encourage the participation with other online groups as although we are a local based group we feel that nationally we need to work together to make the needs of ADHD affected families & individuals heard.

We meet in each others houses usually each month & attend the daytime support group run by Bromley Carers. Our hopes are that if we hold an evening group 2 weeks after every monthly Bromley Carers group then there is support available fortnightly & email/telephone support daily.

The Bromley Addvice website is being upgraded at present & will transfer to a new domain. At present both URLs are active but in time the Moonfruit one will close.
Yahoo! Groups: Bromley-Addvice
