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. They can help people living with the disease, people at risk of inheriting the disease, family members and carers, and children or young people. They can even advise friends, neighbours, employers and your medical team.

North Wales branch
The North Wales Huntington's Disease Association branch is here to support people with or affected by Huntington's disease including carers, family members and those at risk.
This local branch was formed in 2010. Initially, the branch was formed with members from Anglesey and Gwynedd. During the past two years, we have raised a considerable amount of awareness of Huntington’s disease through the commitment and dedication of branch members and our Specialist Huntington's Disease Adviser. This has allowed the group to expand and welcome new members from the counties of Conwy and Denbighshire.
We meet at Table Table, Parc Menai, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 6BW, and we also have social events at the Premier Inn Restaurant/Pub on Parc Menai.
Meetings held every three or four months. There are no meetings during July and August.

South Wales support group
The South Wales Huntington’s disease support group is a small friendly group who get together once a month to chat, support each other and share helpful information. Whatever your connection to the disease, whether at risk, undergoing testing, tested, diagnosed positive or negative, symptomatic, carer, family member, friend or professional you are welcome to join us.
The group is focused on the needs of the members and between us we have a wealth of experience to share. So often people feel very alone with this disease and the aim of the group is to meet others in similar situations, feel listened to and supported.
We also have a facebook group where members can chat with each other between meetings. If you would like to speak to me directly then please contact me via email and I can arrange to contact you either on the phone, in person or electronically.
Cardiff, CF5 2LN
The site is fully accessible and has disabled parking as well as an on-site cafe and beautiful grounds to explore. If you need help with transport let me know and we can see if other members are able to help out.
Generally the last Sunday of the month at 2:30 - 3:30pm.
Please contact the group before attending so we can plan accordingly.
