My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in early 2015 following 10 years of period problems and severe stomach pains. I had my first laparoscopy in May 2015, my second in June 2016 and am awaiting my third. I have found endo debilitating at times, isolating and difficult to talk about. As the closest support group was 100 miles away, I wanted to create a safe space for people in Devon to be able to support each other.

About the support group:

Our group is usually held on the last Wednesday of the month between 6.30pm and 8pm.

We hold the meeting at The Mansion on Totnes High Street. The full address is: The Mansion, 36A Fore St, Totnes TQ9 5RP. We use a room on the ground floor. and it is an easy access building.

Toilets are just opposite the room  

We provide snacks, tea and coffee and on special occasions we may splash out on cake! We are always happy to cater for different dietary requirements. 

There is free parking along the high street but Morrisons, which is a few minutes walk from the venue, allows 2 hours free parking if there are no spaces. 

General Session Information:

The group is for anyone who is experiencing or has had endometriosis. We also welcome anyone who is supporting someone with endometriosis.

The purpose of the group is to find others, get support and raise awareness of endometriosis. We want to empower people to be able to manage and be back in control of their lives. We have informal meetings on a monthly basis. We sometimes invite speakers and try to focus on a different subject every month. We also love to do the occasional social meet and fundraising events!

It is important to understand that you are not alone and support can make such a positive difference to people’s lives. We look forward to meeting you!
