The Macular Society, now has over 400 local support groups, which exist to provide advice and support to people affected by macular conditions, their relatives and friends across the British Isles. The local groups offer practical and emotional support throughout central vision loss. They help people to understand the condition, come to terms with sight loss, share information about treatment and ultimately stay independent.
The Oswestry Macular Support Group was set up in April 2016. Meetings are open to anyone affected by Macular Degeneration or central vision loss. Family and friends are welcome to attend.
Meetings are held from 2pm to 4pm on the third Friday of every month at The Qube, Oswald Road, Oswestry, Shropshire. SY11 1RB. In addition to guest speakers, the group runs social events, outings and trips, as well as fund raising and campaigns to raise the awareness of macular disease.
