How to access support

During this time of social distancing we have had to suspend our face to face support services such as Support Group Get-Togethers, Regional Conferences, befriending and social events and volunteer meetings and training.

As you are aware, since the first lockdown caused by coronavirus on 23rd March 2020, organisations everywhere have encountered challenges in maintaining their usual ways of working and unfortunately myaware is no different. In the second week of January 2021 we have made the difficult decision to furlough some of our staff.

However, we would like to reassure you that myaware is still here to support you despite having reduced staff. Members of myaware can continue to access the following services by clicking on the links below (by clicking on one of the links your email will open)

Zoom Support Sessions

We will be holding nine regional Zoom sessions in February and March to help bring our members together for online discussion and peer support. These online events will appear on our events page along with our monthly ‘New member’ Zoom sessions so please watch this space and make sure you register to secure your place.


Myaware continues to hold a vast amount of information and advice for people living with myasthenia and their families and carers. You can find updates RE coronavirus impacts.

Social Media Peer Support

In addition, you can gain peer support via our closed facebook groups. To join these groups all you have to do is make sure you have current active myaware membership. If you are unsure, you can renew your membership online or phone 01332 290219:
