Peer Support

Al-Anon Family Groups

Alateen
Alateen is for teenage relatives and friends of alcoholics.

We believe alcoholism is a family disease that affects everyone in the family. Alateen meetings are attended by 12-17 year olds. They meet to share their experiences of having, or having had, a problem drinker in their lives. They help and support each other.

Beaumont Society
We are the largest and longest established transgender support group in the UK, and have developed a support network which has been at the forefront of the transgender, transvestite, transsexual and cross-dressing community since 1966! We believe that transgendered people have the right to dignity. The internet often displays transgendered people as sexual objects – the Beaumont Society aims to dispel this myth and is not available for sexual liaisons!

Elder Abuse Response Line
Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) is a specialist organisation that operates across the four nations of the United Kingdom. It also provides some support within Ireland. Unlike other 'older people's organisations' we focus exclusively on the issue of elder abuse, not as one issue among many, but as a single focus to our work. For this reason we have extensive expertise that is not available from any other charity or agency.
Families Anonymous
Families Anonymous is a world-wide fellowship of family members and friends affected by another’s abuse of mind-altering substances, or related behavioural problems.
