The Huntington’s Disease Association is the national charity supporting people affected by Huntington’s disease across England and Wales.
Huntington’s affects the central nervous system and is caused by a faulty gene passed down through families with each child of a parent with Huntington’s having a 50% chance of inheriting it. It changes the whole person – body, mind and behaviour. Around 8000 people in the UK have Huntington’s and around 32000 are at risk of developing it. We provide a national support network for families and professionals, specialist publications, training and social research funding. We also raise awareness and campaign.
With your help, we can achieve our vision of a better life for anyone affected by Huntington’s.
