Emotional Support

The Foundation offers various means of Emotional support that can make a real difference to patients and families.

Our Health coordinator is available to meet with families in person, at home or at hospital clinics as requested. Contact can also be by telephone if preferred.

Events and Sponsorship

The Foundation offers a regular program of patient events held all around the country. Most of these events are free to attend and open to all patient members and their direct family.

Advocacy Support

The support coordinator can help families under stress deal more effectively in accessing information and services related to their medical situation. Over the years we have helped many families with situations involving Hospital/ medical staff, employers, government agencies, schools, etc. It sometimes helps to have someone to call on for independent help or assistance when processing a lot of new information, trying to find answers or simply running out of energy due to the stress and shock of these illnesses.

Medical Specialist Support

The Foundation encourages medical professionals working with individual PID/Transplant patients to register with the Foundation . We offer the opportunity for you to keep up to date on the latest information available on these rare conditions, to hear first hand about our Medical professional seminars and visiting speakers, as well as access to patient information resources.

Holiday Homes

The Foundation is committed to offering respite care to patient members / families affected by the pressures of ongoing health issues.

We now have four respite homes that are available for use by our Patient members; these facilities are very precious to us and we are grateful to all of the Trusts , businesses and individuals that have helped us to fundraise to establish and maintain these for our members.
