NPUK (Niemann-Pick UK) is dedicated to making a positive difference to the lives of those affected by Niemann-Pick diseases & their families, from diagnosis to bereavement & beyond. Niemann-Pick diseases (NPD) are rare, progressive, fatal inherited genetic conditions for which there is no specific treatment or cure. Our vision is a world where the burden of these diseases is minimised, where those affected have access to effective therapies, can meaningfully participate in society, reach their full potential, and achieve the best possible quality of life.
We are here for those affected by NPD, their families and extended families, plus the professionals involved in their care. We raise much needed awareness, provide practical and emotional support, advice and information, and facilitate research into potential therapies. We aim to reduce feelings of isolation and anxiety and to improve resilience through our regular and strong community interaction and activities.
