Understanding Rare Chromosome and Gene Disorders

A caring voice in difficult times...

“Thanks so much for your time yesterday, it meant an awful lot to have a caring, informed voice on the end of the phone in these particularly difficult times.”

Please make a donation so we can help even more families like this, when they most need us, or scroll down for some fundraising ideas.


Unique couldn’t exist without you

Imagine having a baby, realising something is wrong and then receiving a diagnosis of a chromosome or gene disorder, only to be told by the doctors that they don’t know what the future holds and can’t answer your many questions.

Unique is on hand to help but we can only be there because of the donations and brilliant fundraising efforts of our friends and supporters. We provide specialist information and support to families coming to terms with a diagnosis and to the medical professionals caring for them and we're often the only place families can turn to for help. Click here to support them today and if you'd like to fundraise for us, just send a quick email to
