Funding in Action

Some genetic conditions are apparent at birth whilst others are diagnosed at different stages throughout childhood, adolescence and sometimes into adulthood, having a profound and lasting impact on individuals and their families.

Our ambition is that every individual, and their families, can access the right support at times when it’s needed most. By taking part in Jeans for Genes week, we can all work together to make this ambition a reality.

As a result of your incredible fundraising, we support and provide vital funding to our charity partners through our grants programmes and aim to ensure that your donations are put to work in this way to have the most effective impact . This is more than just a week as the impact can be felt all year round.

How your money helps

Skye has Rett syndrome that is robbing her of her ability to walk, feed herself or even speak. Money from Jeans for Genes Day enabled her special school to buy an eye-gaze machine that allows her to communicate with others.
