Our mission is to support adults with ADHD
We do this by providing neurodiverse peer support groups in Brighton & Hove, and nationally on zoom.
ADHD Aware is national charity, based in Brighton. We have been supporting adults impacted by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for over a decade, and are led by volunteers with lived experience of neurodiversity.
We offer peer support both locally and nationally.
"Peer support" is when people use their own personal (lived) experiences to help each other with something they have in common. Our aim is to bring together people with shared experiences to support each other, providing a space where you feel safe, accepted and understood.
We hold a programme of regular sessions each month, both in-person and on Zoom, all supported by our volunteers.
We offer free support for:
- Adults with ADHD,
- Partners of ADHD adults
- Parents of ADHD children, young people and young adults.
Our support groups are a chance to relax in the company of people who understand us. We share information and ideas, and the chance to speak confidentially. We aim to help our members feel that they are not alone, and that they have a place to go for shared experience and forming relationships with like-minded people.
We also run facilitated discussion groups for ADHD adults, which are an opportunity for our members to come together and share information, advice and personal experiences around an agreed topic, with the potential to tackle some of the core issues around living with ADHD.
You can find out more about all of our different sessions, and how to attend, plus other events and activities, in our monthly newsletter. To receive the e-newsletter, please join our mailing list.
