waaddsup is a support group and is the first and only one in wirral for people with ADHD/ADD run by people with ADHD/ADD The group has a committe and is also affiliated to ADDISS. The group meets every 3 weeks in Tranmere where they offer free friendly advice information. They also have a library of books and serve tea / coffee.

I used to do a bit of caring in the community myself with a care agency. Care homes are good to speak to too as they have a lot of information. If you're based in Birkenhead, you could always try Devonshire Manor Care Home. Care home Birkenhead

I hope that helps.
