Young adults monthly catch up: housing and independent living

Join us online for our monthly young adult catch up on 27 March 2024. This meeting is for young adults (aged 18-30) who are living with muscle wasting or weakening conditions in the UK.

Meet other young adults who also know what it’s like to live with a muscle wasting condition at our online catch up.

Living with a muscle wasting condition can involve adapting to changes and an unexpected reality. It can help to meet others and talk about the things that matter to you. 

In this catch-up session from 4pm-6pm, we'll be joined by Lauren who will be sharing her personal experience about accessible housing and independent living. We’ll also be joined by Jackie from our care, information and advocacy team who will be sharing practical information about housing, adaptations and the role of occupational therapy. You can ask questions, share information, and have open and honest discussions. It's a chance to support each other and exchange advice.

There will also be time for general discussion and peer support.

Over the next 12 months, we will be running monthly young adult catchups online. Find upcoming meetings on our Events page.
