We are here to support you whether you are looking for peer support or advice from a professional. Below you can find out more about our Specialist Huntington's Disease Advisers and local branch and support groups.
Our specialist advisers are experienced and compassionate care management professionals.
They support anyone who needs their help at any stage of the Huntington’s journey.

The Huntington's Disease Association London branch support group is run by volunteers to provide emotional and practical support to anyone affected by Huntington's disease in the local area.
We hold informal meetings on a regular basis, usually over tea or coffee, to offer support and advice to people affected by Huntington’s disease. Our venues are spread across London, north of the River Thames, but anyone from across London is welcome to attend.
Prior to the Covid pandemic, we have run family days with guest speakers including Huntington's disease researchers and dieticians; we have had a representative from the Department for Work and Pensions, which our members found extremely useful.
Our social events include picnics and a garden party.
The London branch meets at different venues with the main meetings being held in the Highbury area. Currently meetings are also being held in Uxbridge and 'Pop Up' meetings in East London.
Meetings are held in the following places:
