Nottingham and Derby Social Anxiety Group was founded in November 2013, initially for the Nottingham area and in September 2015, expanded to include the Derby area. It aims to organise a variety of events for anyone who suffers socially to make some new friends, improve social skills, gain confidence and provide a friendly setting.

The group is open to people over the age of 18 who have an anxiety disorder or depression disorder.

Membership to the Nottingham and Derby Social Anxiety Group is FREE

We aim to hold regular events including walks, coffee meetups, breakfast, lunch and monthly evening meal meetups. Other ad-hoc events (as and when they are suggested) include day trips, comedy nights and cinema meets.

This group is run for our members benefit - without them, there would be no group. We want to provide events that they would like to attend. With this in mind, we are open to ideas and suggestions for events they may like us to host. 

New Members

Walking through the door of a venue for the first time is daunting for most people. Be rest assured of a warm welcome; not only from the event hosts who will be looking out for you but also from all the other members. 

We normally meet outside the venue or at a point in town, so that we can go into the venue together. If you are anxious about the meetup, please message the Event Host prior to the event.

Inactive Members 

Members who do not access our Meetup site regularly, may have their membership to our group removed. Those that have not accessed our Meetup site within the last 8 months, will have their membership removed without warning.
