Hi there

There is a group that meets in Glasgow about once a month, they last had a meeting on 30th March. Details can be found on our website here: and we have just launched a group in Tayside (Dundee) and we are currently working with the Volunteers to plan future meetings, information on this group will be updated on our website here:
