About the Charity

The Huntington’s Disease Association (HDA) is the leading national charity working to improve care and support for people and their families affected by Huntington’s. The charity is committed to educating families and professionals about this rare and complex disease.

Huntington’s Disease is a degenerative disorder that involves progressive mental deterioration, significant behavioural changes and severe physical incapacity, which there is no cure for. This general lack of coordination in speech and body movement has drastically affected many individuals.

Based in central Liverpool, this is an exciting time to join the charity as the recent research breakthrough has meant an increase in the media’s attention and therefore contributed to the increased awareness of this inherited disorder.
