Coronavirus Update 12 April 2021

In line with Tradition 5: "Each Group has but one primary purpose - to carry its message to the alcoholic that still suffers".

Please be aware that due to the Coronavirus/Covid 19, that some meetings in Northumberland remain CLOSED.  As lockdown measures are allowing the meeting of support groups, some online Zoom meetings are now closing down, with a phased return to the physical Rooms. 

Under the new lockdown legislation in Great Britain, in-person meetings of a maximum of 15 attendees may continue under strict Covid Secure Conditions if there is no reasonable alternative available. Please continue to monitor all national and local updates and be mindful of your safety and the safety of others at all times.

We are in the process of returning to the Rooms; please check back regularly for more details of which meetings have been moved back and which remain online.  For the most up to date information available, if a particular meeting has an email address associated to it, please direct your enquiry to that email address in the first instance. Some groups are also looking into running hybrid meetings whereby a physical Room will have members attending from outside also via a Zoom link.

Support groups

Support groups that have to be delivered in person can continue with up to 15 participants where officially organised to provide mutual aid, therapy or any other form of support. Support groups must be organised by a business, charity or public body and must not take place in a private home or garden. All participants should maintain social distancing. Examples of support groups include those that provide support to:

  • those with, or recovering from, addictions (including alcohol, narcotics or other substance addictions) or addictive patterns of behaviour.

As Northumberland Intergroup Officers and Individual Group Service Representatives are collaborating behind the scenes to get as many of the meetings back to the phyiscal rooms as possible whilst others remain online.  There will be strict measures in place due to the current restrictions on social distancing so please be prepared to follow instructions on arrival at physical meetings. Please see online meetings page for full details.
