The association holds an autumn function each year. These give members an opportunity to hear interesting guest speakers, meet their fellows, share experiences and see what new products are available.

The next function will be held at Hughes Community Centre on Saturday, 27 May 2017, starting at 1pm. There will be a discussion of hernia support, and advice on travelling. Supplier companies will have their products on show. Refreshments will be provided.

The annual general meeting for 2017 will be held at Hughes Community Centre in September.
