About ADHD Lancashire
In 2011 ADHD Lancashire was founded as a support group to extend a supportive hand to other parents with children dealing with ADHD or those on the path of diagnosis. We warmly welcomed children with Autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, learning disabilities, and special needs into our loving community.
We understand that ADHD can create a sense of social isolation for both children and their families. Many children may find it challenging to interact with peers, which can lead to the loss of friendships and unfortunate instances of rejection.
At ADHD Lancashire, we are dedicated to alleviating these challenges by providing a safe haven of information and support. Through regular monthly meetings and engaging events, we create a nurturing space for individuals with ADHD.
2013 our incredible adult support group was established, bringing together individuals across Lancashire for monthly face-to-face gatherings. However, with the advent of lockdown measures, we adapted and shifted our meetings to the virtual realm through Zoom, ensuring that we could maintain the vital connections we had fostered. As a result, on the 1st Thursday of every month, we now meet online to provide unwavering support and camaraderie.
Additionally, for those who prefer in-person interactions, we host Face-to-Face group meetings, usually scheduled on the 3rd Thursday of every month. Feel free to visit our events page for more detailed information and join us in person when it suits you best.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Support Group Meetings
Really informative and non-judgemental group sessions. When in the process of a possible diagnosis (or even after a diagnosis) it’s really difficult to know what information is useful and trusted. Within the group the information is made clear and concise and it’s always comforting to hear other people’s experiences. The group is very relaxed and open and was really enjoyable to attend. I will definitely be attending future group sessions.
Support Group Meetings
Hi Bee, you offer great support for adults with ADHD. I was worried at first, coming to something like this, but I found everyone so supportive and felt at home straight away. It’s a safe place that you have created and we’re learning so much in a relaxed environment.
Private Coaching Sessions
I have been working with Bernadette for the past two months. During her coaching sessions, I am learning a lot about the areas my ADHD has been affecting me. Bernadette has given me some useful tools to use when I become overwhelmed with my workload to reduce my procrastinating. Looking forward to learning more about myself and my ADHD!
