Umbrella (previously known as Chronic) is a Peer Support Group for students at UEA with chronic health conditions, mobility issues, disabilities and those who wish to support them. We campaign on behalf of disabled people, run weekly support groups, organise socials and offer online support. The group is validated by the UEA Students' Union.

The support groups are a secure, accessible and non-judgmental environment where students can share experiences, knowledge and worries. We have weekly meetings every Wednesday at 2pm in Room TBC, which are friendly and informal where students chat over tea and coffee.

Umbrella is a great place to meet like-minded people, especially at our socials which are more relaxed. We do not focus on drinking and are more about getting to know each other and having a laugh.
