About Gauchers Association (UK)

The Gauchers Association is a non-profit support group dedicated to providing information and support to families in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and elsewhere whose lives have been affected by Gaucher’s disease. Gaucher’s disease is the most common type of lipid storage disease (others include Tay-Sachs, Fabry’s, and Neimann-Pick diseases) and is characterized by anemia, fatigue, easy bruising, and a tendency to bleed more easily than normal. Established in 1991 and currently consisting of 150 members, the Gauchers Association provides information to the general public and medical professionals about Gaucher’s disease, and actively encourages ongoing medical research.
