We aim to identify and help as many r(20) families as possible

offering our support in response for their input; information sharing, experience of living with r(20), treatment options, fundraising and more.  We ask that all families, individuals and professionals that wish to engage with us become members, in order that they may jointly contribute to our cause, by virtue of time, money or information (no matter how large or small).
We rely on our members and supporters to help us move forward in our quest. It also ensures we do not lose contact with you, should your contact details change in the future.  If you haven’t already done so, please take a few moments to sign-up using the form on the right.

As members you will be invited to vote at our AGM (held in March/April each year) and have your say in the charitable activities in which we engage.  We may contact members from time to time with information regarding r(20) and/or our charity, which we think will be of interest to you.  We take your privacy seriously and will not pass on your personal details to any other person or organisation without prior consent.

Membership is FREE, open to all those aged 18 or over and there is no obligation.
