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: email@example.com. Our animation called ‘Ellie’s story’ explains what it means to have an undiagnosed genetic condition and how SWAN UK helps. Click the link to find out more: bit.ly/elliesstory We offer 24/7 information and support through our online forums for registered members. If you would like to become a SWAN UK member please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or click here to find out more. Don’t forget to check out our news section and join our mailing list too.

We champion children and young people’s right to have a say in decisions that affect their lives. We run a range of youth voice programmes and projects to enable children and young people to develop campaigns, participate in city wide ballots and youth voice summit and share their views and priorities with decision makers. We provide advice, guidance and training to staff to develop their skills and confidence in facilitating children, young people and parents/ carers involvement in decisions making processes. We work with different teams and services to ensure young people and parents/cares are actively involved in recruitment and selection of senior staff, commissioning services and developing city wide consultations.
