The aim of the Niemann-Pick Disease Group (UK) is to make a positive difference to families affected by the disease through the provision of Care, Information and Research.
Care takes the form of providing a central office with a 24hour telephone help line and funding a dedicated Clinical Nurse Specialist to give support through advice, counselling, specialist clinics and advocacy.
Information is provided through leaflets, newsletters, family newsbulletin, family directories, care manuals, our website and the Annual Family Conference.
Research is in collaboration with other organisations and support groups. Our focus is maintained by a Research Co-ordinator and we offer an annual memorial award.Disease Support Organization Last Updated: 30 Jan 2019
