DescriptionHuntington’s Disease is a hereditary neurological condition that leads to progressively deteriorating muscle co-ordination and cognitive ability, drastically impacting the quality of life of those who are symptomatic. However, the impact of this disease affects not just the individual themselves, but also their carers, families and the communities they live in. There is still no cure for Huntington’s Disease.

•Organising support groups (Teen Support, Gene Positive, Carers Group, Symptomatic, etc)
•Raising awareness and understanding about Huntington’s Disease
•Operating a weekly day care centre
•Providing financial assistance to those affected
•Collaborating in research projects related to Huntington’s Disease
•Counselling for individuals and families
•Providing information and resources for the Huntington’s Community,Health Professionals and the Public.
