Gemma Mitchell

Hello, I am Gemma. I work as an Administration Officer for Unique.

My main job is to keep the database updated and I am currently engaged in a rolling programme sending out database entry forms and consent forms to our member families.  Gathering together information from families in a centralised database is crucial. It helps further our understanding of lots of different disorders, helps us support families and professionals, match families with others and we’ve even used it to help families gain access to services and resources.

I am Mum to two beautiful girls, Ella, aged 17 ( 6p25 deletion ) and Holly, 12, both of whom keep me very busy!
