Coventry Support Group

The Coventry Support Group formed in September 2004.

We hold regular public information meetings, at:

St John the Baptist Church Hall
corner Spon Street and Corporation Street

Unless stated on each dated event in the programme.

Bus stops FC and FG are nearby. There is on street disabled parking. Maps are available on request. 

All our meetings are open to all, usually with an admission fee of £3.00, including refreshments. 

We do not have membership to the group. Instead, we encourage you to join the Royal Osteoporosis Society.

Our aims are:

  • to offer support to people with osteoporosis, their families and carers;
  • promote local exercise classes to improve bone health;
  • raise awareness of osteoporosis and bone health among people of all ages by giving talks to local organisations and giving assemblies and in-class support in local primary schools;
  • fundraise for research into osteoporosis, to increase understanding of the disease and improve treatment options and patient care;
  • work with healthcare professionals to facilitate greater understanding of the needs of people with osteoporosis;
  • lobby for local improvements in osteoporosis diagnosis and treatment.
