Taunton Family Programme and Information Day

Our family programmes are very popular. With separate sessions for adults and children, the focus is on living positively with a hypermobility syndrome and how to actively manage our own conditions.
We are aiming to have them all over the UK. In recent months we have held them in Alton, Hampshire and also Swansea. We have had some fantastic feedback from those that attended.

Our next family programmme is in Taunton on August 15th 2015. To order tickets online and for more information check out our shop here.
