The first Coeliac Society Supported Kerry Meet Up Launched on May 12th 2022 and we plan to meet up once a month and to create a Kerry Community where we gather, learn, support each other and run events throughout the year.
The Support Group is open to Members of the Coeliac Society of Ireland and Non Members, all are welcome!
This Community is also open to Food Producers and the Hospitality Sector who would like to learn how to support our Community better!
"The Coeliac Circle Community & Support groups offer peer support, education, and advocacy for people who are adversely affected by gluten, and are dedicated to improving their quality of life.
On first diagnosis, you may feel shocked and overwhelmed, with more questions than answers. Or you might be on the journey for a while and you are looking for additional support. You may feel lonely in your diagnosis, uninformed or just need some advice on living your gluten free life to the full."
