ADHD Aware

Supporting adults with ADHD.

‘ADHD Aware is a small organisation based in Brighton which has been run by volunteers for the last 9 years, supporting adults living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). With this new website, we aim to offer support for adult ADHD both locally and nationally.

We hold three sessions each month: an unstructured Peer Support Group Drop-In;  an ADHD Discussion Group (on a booking only basis); and a Family, Friends & Partners support group, which is also a drop-in.

We organise the drop-in support groups so that we can all relax in the company of people who understand one-another. We share information and ideas with the chance to speak confidentially. The facilitated discussion groups are an opportunity for our members to come together and share information, advice and personal experiences around an agreed topic, with the potential to tackle some of the core issues of living with ADHD.

For more information about our drop-in support group meetings, please see the Support Group Meetings pages.

Our aim is to show our members they are not alone’.

The Real Junk Food Project

The Real Junk food project is an environmental project rescuing surplus food from supermarkets and food businesses. They have the slogan, ‘feed bellies, not bins’ 

They run cafes where home cooked meal are available from tues – fri:

Tues/Wed – St Lukes Church, Old Shoreham road

Thu – Hollingdean Community Centre, Thompson Rd, Hollingdean

Fri – One Church, Gloucester Place

As their network got better at intercepting food destined for waste, they needed to find new ways to distribute it. Sharehouses don’t usually prepare or cook food, but make it available for people to collect and consume elsewhere.

They also have a food shop at their hub in Bevendean open mon-fri 1-4.30pm where surplus food is available. 

They have a concept of ‘Pay as you feel’ that includes everyone regardless of income, and they invite donations of money, volunteering or if you have a skill to offer please go along and get involved.
