Website: https://www.cdg-uk.orgWe are the national charity supporting those who are affected by Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG). The disease means that part of the brain, the cerebellum, is damaged before birth, and 20% of babies with the disease will die before their first birthday. The majority of the children with the disease need constant help with physical mobility, will most likely use wheelchairs or walkers to get around, and may need to be tube fed. The disease affects all organs of the body, including the eyes and the liver. We support patients and families by providing information and advice during and after diagnosis, we raise awareness among health professionals and the general public about these ultra rare disorders and we raise funds for research as this CDGs are currently incurable.
We support people with combined sight and hearing loss to live the lives they want.
Whether you need some support to get back on your feet after a diagnosis, a helping hand to help you do the things you love, someone to turn to when you’re feeling low or some information, advice and guidance, we’re here to help.
Losing your sight and hearing can be frightening. Our team of experts is here every step of the way to show you life beyond sight and hearing loss.

Young Epilepsy is a national charity whose focus is providing a range of services for children with epilepsy and other associated conditions.
When parents and carers have had the diagnosis from the doctor, often without explanation on how it will impact family life - we take time to explain what epilepsy is, how the condition can be managed and how healthcare workers, teachers, friends and family can work together to give the support that is needed using specific resources that we provide. We focus exclusively on supporting children and young people.
