Where do my funds go?
All money raised by and for Lipodystrophy UK is put into promoting the charity and raising awareness of Lipodystrophy. Lipodystrophy needs funds to be able to organise patient days, run the website and pay for promotional material. As the charity grows our goal is to be able to offer up to date information to GP’s nationwide, to make sure that diagnosis and ongoing care is as efficient and consistent for all patients as possible. We would also love to be able to offer financial support to patients that are in need, and to offer financial support for research opportunities.
The patient days that Lipodystrophy UK have organised so far have been in collaboration with the SIR Service at Addenbrookes Hospital and have only been possible once a year. Our hope is that we can eventually raise enough funds to independently run patient days throughout the year, throughout the UK.
