Unique couldn’t exist without you

Imagine having a baby, realising something is wrong and then receiving a diagnosis of a chromosome or gene disorder, only to be told by the doctors that they don’t know what the future holds and can’t answer your many questions.

Unique is on hand to help but we can only be there because of the donations and brilliant fundraising efforts of our friends and supporters. We provide specialist information and support to families coming to terms with a diagnosis and to the medical professionals caring for them and we're often the only place families can turn to for help. Click here to support them today.
