Hypermobility UK is involved with Personalised, Individualised and Self Funded Budgets and realises that there is still a lot more still do with the county of Essex and would like to see this fully funded as of next year and we are looking for £ 300-600K to fund it for five years or more. If you are interested and what to help again please contact us. hypermobilityuk@btinternet.com

    We are also hoping to make available information cards that can be used when dealing with professionals such as medical and educational staff. Have you ever had to go through a barrage of questions from medical staff who accuse you of child abuse! Do you have to take a pile of paperwork which they scoff at! We can stop that by making available information cards, that fold in half for a cost of £ 12.50 for a pack of ten. For more information please email hypermobilityuk@btinternet.com
