Support groups: 1. Introduction

1. Introduction

On this page you can find details about peer-to-peer dyslexia support groups active within local communities. 

Support groups can offer valuable support and information to anyone affected by dyslexia. Whether you’re dyslexic yourself or you support someone who is, joining a local support group can provide the opportunity to meet and talk to others who share or understand your experience of dyslexia.


Dyslexia support groups provide valuable help and information to people living with dyslexia or supporting someone who does, but you should know that:

  • This page is for peer-led support groups only. We will not promote any groups led by professionals.
  • The support groups listed on this website are independent groups and have no connection with Dyslexia Action.  
  • The information we provide on our website about support groups is included to keep those affected by dyslexia informed about the support services available to them locally. We rely on support groups to tell us when there is any change to their contact representative and the contact details. The information we include on our website is the latest we have received from the respective groups.
  • We have no control over the activities of these support groups and we accept no responsibility for what they do. This disclaimer covers all activities including any representational or campaigning activities they may undertake, any advice they may give and any other services they may provide.
