ELPCSG publications

We produce two fliers - a general information leaflet about the group and the Buddying service we offer (Buddy Flier) , and an A4 poster which publicises the work of the group (Buddy Poster) - the latter is particularly useful to display in GP surgeries and medical centres. These are downloadable by clicking below.
