AMEND Annual Patient Information Day Success
The sun was shining on Saturday 20th May in London for our Annual Patient Information Day, and our venue beside the Regent’s Canal was the perfect place to receive all the members of our rare endocrine diseases communities who had booked to attend.
Become a Peer Support Volunteer
We are currently recruiting for Peer Support Volunteers, with a preference for volunteers with MEN2 or MEN3 living in the South, Southeast and East of England. All Volunteers will receive training (x1 weekend or weekday), must attend an annual Feedback & Development Day (x1 weekend), and will be required to hold x1-2 virtual meetings (weekends or weekday evenings), and x2 in-person meetings (weekends) per annum.

AMEND has been awarded a grant of £9,090 from the National Lottery Community Fund for our Peer Support Meetings project.

The dates for the first three virtual peer support meetings for 2021 have been confirmed, with the 1st to be held on Saturday 30th January. All those with or caring for someone with an MEN or PGL syndrome are welcome to join in to share experiences to help others. Registration is required but the events are free.
