With care and practical understanding of the daily impacts of ADHD we provide authoritative information and services through our helpline, websites, events and publications.For twenty years we have run quarterly ADHD Awareness Afternoons with practical topics led by great speakers and a chance to meet and chat with others over tea and coffee.

Each year the ADHD Annual Conference brings together the latest thinking on ADHD from clinicians and researchers with our members and the community.

ADDults with ADHD: 20 Years Young

ADDults with ADHD has been operating for 20 years to provide support for adults with ADHD and their families.

ADDults with ADHD CelebrationThere have been 8 Presidents over the past 20 years and many other volunteers serving on the Committee of Management, in the office and at events. ADDults with ADHD is a wholly volunteer-run organisation. However, the quality and range of its services is high and the services comprehensive for the relatively small band of dedicated volunteers who have maintained its operation over the years.


Office Volunteers

A number of volunteers work at our office to provide services and administrative functions such as:

  • telephone helpline and referral information
  • information packs and handouts
  • membership services
  • newsletter publication
  • books for sale
  • books and DVD library
  • event management of awareness afternoons, conferences and seminars

Without our office volunteers we would not be able to provide as much service as we do.

Join our friendly volunteer team!
