We hold two main meetings a year, with speakers on subjects related to lupus and allied matters of interest to members. We also have regular Coffee & Chat meetings across both counties and lunches in the Spring and at Christmas. Our events are open to members, family, carers, friends, supporters and anyone interested.
We work with the public and health professionals to increase awareness of lupus and its impact on those living with the condition. Devon & Cornwall Lupus Group has strong links with medical schools in Exeter and Plymouth.
To raise awareness, we have stands during Lupus Awareness Month at the five main hospitals in both counties. To raise funds, we sell cards, jewellery and other items donated, designed and made by members and supporters at our meetings.
