About us

The Devon Branch of the Huntington’s Disease Association functions via a Branch Committee and various other individuals (all volunteers) offering their assistance from time to time. The pages of this website are designed to give families, carers and health professionals in our region a better understanding of the local support and facilities available.

The main objectives of our local Devon Branch are as follows:-

  • To raise Public Awareness of HD by participating and organising events in our region
  • To provide more Local Information which is not included in the HDA national website
  • To arrange and promote Fund Raising encouraging others to assist whenever possible
  • To help local families with their Problem Solving by offering practical and financial assistance

Our objectives are achieved by:-

  1. Acting in conjunction with the Huntington’s Specialist HD Adviser (SHDA)
  2. Producing regular Newsletters for branch members including Health Professionals
  3. Exchanging views at informal “Get Together” sessions open to all branch members
  4. Keeping in touch with those on the internet and providing useful information via this website
