Our sincere thanks to our friends at Changing Faces, who have kindly agreed to host us at their offices in central London for our Support Group Meetings. This venue offers a chance to meet with others in a relaxed environment away from the Hospital or a noisy pub. As always the main aim is to provide a space in the London area to meet and socialise with people who have experienced some form of burn injury either directly or indirectly.

 

I would be very grateful if you could RSVP for the meetings so that I know roughly how many people to expect, can cater accordingly and provide a guest list to Changing Faces.

You are always welcome even if you do not have a chance to inform us in advance.

 

Please call me on 020 3315 2504 or email lmwilliams@nhs.net to confirm or if you have any questions.

 

Changing Faces is based at The Squire Centre, 33-37 University St, (just off Tottenham Court Road) London WC1E 6JN. The closest tube stations are Euston, Warren Street and Euston Square.

For more info see their Changing Faces and for directions click here.

 

I really hope you will be able to join us and look forward to seeing you there.
