Patient & Family Support Service

The Gauchers Association Patient and Family Support Service can help with any unmet support needs (non-medical). We can support you with a whole range of issues. For example, guiding you through benefit applications (Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Disability Living Allowance (DLA)), attending appointments, accessing home adaptations, liaising with homecare teams, appeals for schools, getting support at college. 

Thank you to everyone who particpated in our research project entitled 'An Insight from Gaucher patients aged 45 and over in the UK'.  The results of which will be used to shape our future patient and family support service.  To download the full report click here
