Support Groups (Full List)

Disclaimer: This list is for informational purposes only.  AADD-UK does not endorse or recommend any commercial products, processes or services.  Inclusion on this list does not necessarily state or reflect the views of AADD-UK, and inclusion here may not be used for advertising or endorsement purposes.

Since ADHD is a lifespan disorder, we are including on this page not  only support groups for adults but also support groups for children and parents.

Some groups listed below are for adults only, some are for parents of children with ADHD only (although there are some groups that run separate sessions for both) and finally some of the groups are closed Facebook groups.  We suggest that you contact the leader of the group before attending/joining to make sure the group suits your needs.

Also, please note that some of the groups listed below charge fees for attendance, and some are run by professional coaching services or other kinds of training programmes.

If your group is not listed here, and you would like it to be added, or you want to have your  contact details updated, please email us at Please include the following details: contact information, type of group (e.g. children, parents, adults, or partners), meeting time and frequency, and location.

If there is no group in your area and you would like to start one yourself, please email us at

For everyone else, if you have any questions or just want to talk, please join us on our forum here.

We welcome all adults with ADHD with or without diagnosis, their parents and partners. All meetings are free, confidential and non judgmental.
