Providing advice, information and support to the parents of all disabled children - no matter what their disability or health condition.
We are a patient-led, UK-based, registered charity dedicated to supporting people living with Usher syndrome.
Our mission is simple, to raise awareness of Usher syndrome and fund research to help find a cure. People with Usher syndrome experience combined hearing and sight loss. It’s a rare genetic condition that affects everyone differently. But Usher syndrome doesn’t define us.
