Running a support group

We are always looking to extend our network of support groups. If you can't find a convenient group in your area why not consider applying to become a volunteer Support Group Leader?

You will not be alone. We can provide you with plenty of assistance to get the ball rolling including producing posters to advertise meetings, writing press releases to publicise your new group in the local paper, advertising your meetings on our website/Facebook pages and sending out invitations to people on our database in your area.

We can help source speakers by liaising with our medical contacts, and offer presentations from Cardiomyopathy UK staff. While you will need to find the venue yourself and fix the times of meetings, we have a small budget that can help fund the cost of room hire.


We are particularly keen to hear from you if you are interested in assisting with the running of an existing group in Dorset, York, Slough, North London, Wiltshire, Cumbria or Fareham or in setting up a new group in any of these areas;

Bradford, Nottingham, Leicester, Ipswich, Bristol and Stoke.

If you are interested in volunteering to set up a new support group or to find out more please contact
