SWAN UK is the only dedicated support network for families of children with undiagnosed genetic conditions. Approximately 6,000 children are born in the UK each year with a syndrome without a name – a genetic condition so rare that it is often impossible to diagnose. Without a diagnosis it can be difficult to access basic information and support. We have information leaflets below which are available to download. We are developing leaflets in further languages and these will also be available to download once they are completed. If you can’t find the answer to your question in the resources below or would like to make an enquiry please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Our animation called ‘Ellie’s story’ explains what it means to have an undiagnosed genetic condition and how SWAN UK helps.
