Liverpool Allergy Support Group

The Liverpool Support Group was set up a few years ago by a few parents and a young person, and has blossomed from there.

The group meets every few months and all are welcome, with the children's ages range from infants to young adults.

The setting is informal and friendly, and is mainly a catch up over a hot (or cold) drink and maybe the odd biscuit.

There is an active WhatsApp group that provides supportive discussion for all members. There is always something being discussed, be it the challenges of school, holidays, eating out, or just the daily grind of families living with allergies.
