Join a support group

A network to help you learn from each other

AMA support groups provide an opportunity to network with other people undertaking the AMA.  They help you connect and learn from peers as well as giving you the opportunity to develop skills.

There are a number of regional support groups that meet regularly to support each other on their AMA journey. Each AMA support group is different – meeting the particular needs of the group members at that time. 

Some meet monthly. Others meet quarterly. Some meet in the same venue every time. Others rotate and visit different museums. Some invite guest speakers. Some discuss ethical issues.

All help you connect, develop and feel supported.

You can attend the AMA support group that meets your needs, anywhere in the UK. 

To find your local support group, and learn about support group events in your area, please choose the group nearest to you. 

Covid-19 update

During the current situation all face-to-face AMA support group meetings have stopped. AMA support group meetings for all regions and nations are being held virtually.

The dates, times and invitations will be shared as part of the weekly AMA update emails.
