Our Network

Networking is an invaluable way to align with organisations that share our values and help us to improve the support we offer to individuals with Hyperinsulinism and their families. It also provides us with exciting opportunities to join in advocacy projects and support initiatives that help the wider rare disease population.

We are currently members or partner with:


Box4Kids invites seriously ill children to enjoy sporting and entertainment events from the comfort of executive boxes. The boxes provide a safe and relaxing environment for children and most importantly the opportunity to be treated like a VIP for the day.  These much-deserved experiences provide quality time for each child and their guest, away from the day-to-day challenges they face with their illnesses.

They are packed with pictures and references to equipment and procedures presented through a rhyming story with cartoon illustrations. This helps to, in a child friendly manner, introduce and explain some of the experiences they will have during theirs or a family member’s hospital admission.

Breaking Down Barriers

We are a network of over 60 organisations working together to improve the lives of families from diverse and marginalised communities, who are affected by genetic conditions, so they have equal access to health services.

There is no such thing as hard to reach communities, only services and organisations that can be difficult for people from diverse communities to access.
