Unique turns 40 this year, so weโ€™d like to hear the views of everyone in the rare chromosome & gene disorder community on our services and what our future focus should be.

Our short survey will take approximately 20 minutes, you donโ€™t need to complete it in one go and you can return to it at any time. You don't need to be a Unique member to take part.
